Who is behind Urban Outlaw Boutique?

March 14, 2019 2 Comments

Hey Babes! 

    I am Kimberly  the owner of Urban Outlaw Boutique. I am a born and raised California girl originally from northern California, now live in Turlock with my husband.  I graduated from California State University, Stanislaus in Spring 2018 with a Bachelor's Degree in Communication Studies, with an emphasis in public communication and media. I also have a minor in journalism. 

     I have been associated with Urban Outlaw since Fall 2017, I got involved with the store by reaching out to former owner, to see if I could write an article on her for my Alma Mater's school paper.  Following the article I volunteered to help with her first annual fall fashion show. Because of my background in retail and communications and my desire to show her I wanted to be involved with the company, this opportunity led to a job offer.  I kept working under the former owner until I graduated in May 2018, then I took several months off to move back home to plan my wedding. After the wedding I came back to Turlock, and returned to my job at Urban Outlaw this time as the manager.

     In November 2018 the owner and her family moved  out of state and I took on running the day to day operations. A month later we moved into our new space (225 East main st, Turlock) and resumed business as normal.  Fast forward to February 2019 and Amy felt it was time to move on from being the owner of Urban Outlaw, She offered to sell the business to me and I was very excited to accept and purchase the store.  

     Now, I have always wanted to run my own business ever since I was a little girl. So when I got the opportunity to buy Urban Outlaw I jumped at the chance.  In the short time I have been a business owner I have a newfound sense of pride and drive to be the best and do the best I can,so I can make sure the business is successful.  That is a bit about how I became the owner of Urban Outlaw Boutique.
