The new location is just a stone's throw from its current perch.

Stephanie Horne Boutique, a longtime Third Ward retailer specializing in women’s contemporary duds, will be closing its location at 244 N. Broadway at 4 p.m. Oct. 2 and reopening just down the street Oct. 3. According to an email release, Horne’s shop will take over the digs recently vacated by Denim Bar MKE at 317 N. Broadway.

Horne started her clothing business online in 2006, then opened her first physical store in the Third Ward at 159 N. Broadway, now occupied by Mainstream Boutique. She opened a second location in 2009 in Wauwatosa that has since closed.
