SoKo boutique stays on Chicago Avenue


A message from SoKo Fashion, 1925 W Chicago, was forwarded Friday to the CAPS Beat 1322 e-mail list, with a comment from beat coordinator David J. Stumm Sr.: “You have done a GREAT job of helping a neighborhood business!”

Within days of announcing the closing of SoKo Fashion, customers came out in droves searching for answers & of course seeking out some amazing deals.

It was sad to explain to customers that fear had invaded the air and the economy was raining on our parade. Lucky for SoKo Fashion though, 2 things happened:

1. Customers shopped like their lives depended on it (this was the much needed x-mas that didn't happen in December) and

2. SoKo was presented with 2 offers from customers who were just unwilling to accept that SoKo was shutting its' doors. The first offer was to buy the business. The second offer was to partner with owner, Sheri Roney. WooHoo!

We decided to go with the latter and partner with our long-standing customer who has also become a great friend to the owner!

Let us introduce Amanda Wood! No seriously, we want you to come to our meet 'n greet with Amanda on March 12 from 6 p.m. - 8 p.m. More details to come. With that said, please note the final day of our 40% off sale is this Sunday, March 1.

We are so thankful to have such loyal and dedicated customers, because without you this wouldn't have been possible.

It really does take a community to raise a business. Thank you.

  2. That's awesome. All the women I know love to shop at this place. It doesn't surprise me that a customer offered to partner. Go Soko!!! Economy sucks, but hang in there & things will get better. :-)
