Briosa Boutique brings fun, flirty, feminine fashions to Frankfort in its vintage location at 22 S. White Street. Current owners Gloria Ursich, Rae Vegetabile and Debbie Bell took over a former Frankfort boutique and gave it their own finishing touches, but it’s continued to provide stand out service and quality clothing over the years.

Ursich, who has been a part of the store since its inception along with her co-owners, loves the downtown Frankfort location, as do Briosa’s customers.

“People really appreciate not having to go to Orland or Oak Brook to find these sophisticated, yet uncomplicated styles,” Ursich explained. “We’re getting more and more shoppers coming in for gifts and for last minute weekend outfits.”

Briosa is also open seven days a week to accommodate their customers, Ursich added.

"We try to bring in new things every week," she said. "One of the things I wanted to make sure people knew was that we would still stay unique, but we would be more affordable. Customers can come find really stylish pieces at affordable prices."

And the support works both ways at Briosa. Ursich said being a boutique means offering a higher level of personalized service than a department store.

"We try to know each person's name," she said. "We've gotten to know some of our customers really well. I've even watched some of their kids grow up over the last seven years. We just really love what we do, and we think it shows."

Briosa Boutique is open Sunday and Monday, 11-3; Tuesday through Friday, 10-7; Saturday, 11-5.
