Fort Lee BDA welcomes Kuun Clothing and Accessories to the business community
Fort Lee, NJ—Members of the Fort Lee community welcomed the opening of a new business, Kuun Clothing and Accessories at 200 Main Street. The ribbon cutting ceremony, which started at 11:00 a.m. on May 25, featured members of the Business District Alliance, Chamber of Commerce, and prominent citizens such as town councilman, Harvey Sohmer, who officiated the ceremony.
The new business is a high-end fashion store, catering towards women ages 30-50. Owner Soyoun Chung said she made the move to open her own fashion store after being a buyer for a clothing retailer for 18 years. She currently is also the owner of Juun Hair Salon, located right above her new apparel store. Chung said having the hair salon right above the clothing store makes “a good combination for women’s makeovers: top to bottom.” Chung said her goal with the new store is to provide “very fashionable clothes at a good price for the local community.”
Heidi Levine, the District Manager for the Fort Lee Business District Alliance is delighted to welcome the new business. “There’s such a great market here in Fort Lee for high-end apparel and accessories,” Levine said. Levine also noted something all the attendees saw, “it’s such a bright beautiful space,” she said “it was renovated so nicely.”
Hope Rothenberg, executive director of the Fort Lee Chamber of Commerce, said she is excited to “welcome the business to the neighborhood and town,” adding “it is a much needed complement to the stores, there aren’t many high-end clothing stores.” Rothenberg also mentioned the new store is part of the Rising Rewards program, a gift certificate program sponsored by the Business District Alliance.
Town councilman Harvey Sohmer said he is “very happy for this business to open. We love opening up new businesses and we hope they stay a long time.” The short ceremony had around 15 attendees and light refreshments were served for the group as local leaders welcomed the new store in their remarks. Kuun Clothing and Accessories is now open to meet the fashion needs of local women, and the community couldn’t be more excited!
