Monkee’s of Blowing Rock Announces New Owner

Jessica and Kenneth Wehrmann are pleased to announce their purchase of Monkee’s of Blowing Rock.  Originally from Wilkesboro, NC, the Wehrmanns are excited to move back to a place they love.  The mountains hold fond memories of Appalachian tailgates, romantic dinners, beautiful Parkway drives, picnics, and days spent shopping!

Jessica became part of the Monkee’s team in Winston-Salem during her junior year of college at Wake Forest University.  Upon graduation, she became a full time sales associate and then manager.  Her love of fashion and people drove her into retail, but her love of the Monkee’s mantra held her.

“I love walking into a Monkee’s store knowing that I will be treated like family whether they know me or not.  To have the opportunity to own a Monkee’s, and share the sense of community with others, has been a dream of mine for quite some time.  I love being able to meet new people, build relationships and have fun shopping all in a day’s work!”
