The windows read "Prepare Your Closets" and, for many of us, that is exactly what we've been doing since spotting the canary yellow storefront of Brightside Boutique's newest location. The space, which was formerly children's store Greenberries on The Avenue in Hampden, will be the third and largest retail location for store owner Christie Griffiths.

"We are so excited to be in Hampden," says Griffiths. "I love this area and how it has always been artsy, quirky, and cool. We just feel like it fits in so well with Brightside."

The store, which will open March 10, is stocked with Brightside staples from sassy one-liners from Jac Vanek, to the perfect Blank NYC jeans, and cute dresses from BB Dakota.

Plus, man friends are welcome. This location will be the first to offer men's clothing from brands like Carhartt Wip, United By Blue, and Alternative Apparel. The store will also be carrying Levi's Made & Crafted line for both women and men.


You can also look for Brightside's great assortment of gifts like Corksicle canteens, beard oil and fragrances for men, and our personal favorite Boyfriend Candles, which come in scents like The Coffee Shop Hipster and The Lumberjack.


The Hampden store will open its doors for the first time on Friday, March 10 at 3 p.m. with a 15 off storewide sale until 8 p.m.
