Q&A with owner, DeeDee Shaw!

Q: Why did you want to own your own business?
A: I was a rep on the road for Armani eye wear and I loved it. I always dreamed of having my own business and creating opportunities for others and excitement for a community. My theory has always been, “If you love what you do you never work.”

Q: What sets you apart from other boutiques?
A: Customer service. Our motto has always been, “Come in, sit down in our living room, try on and have fun!” There is no pressure here. 

Q: Why do you believe the Monkee’s organization continues to be successful?
A: Our store owners are amazing; they love their stores and are excited about fashion. Additionally our corporate team is always willing to help and does a great job finding new lines for our stores. 


Q: What organizations do you enjoy supporting in your community?
A: As a business, we enjoy being active in supporting many different charitable organizations throughout the year - from Breast Cancer Research to Toys for Tots. The New Hanover Regional Medical Center and the Make-A-Wish Foundation are two that are near and dear to us. I get great joy in seeing others happy.
