ORLAND PARK, IL (July 15, 2021) – It's the end of an era for women's fashion in Orland Park. After nearly four decades of dressing women around the world, The Kimberly Bond Boutique will permanently close its doors in August, 2021.

"It's been an amazing run," said Kimberly Bond who opened her first Orland Park store in 1986. "We have dressed women from all around the world for every imaginable event."

Located at 8650 West 159th Street in Orland Park, The Kimberly Bond Boutique, specializes in formal and evening wear, accessories and more. The store is synonymous with elegant attire and personalized customer service.

"If you've received compliments on your evening wear, odds are Kimberly Bond was involved," said longtime customer Dr. Jean Miller Norris. "As an icon of fashion, Kim has a unique gift of connecting with her clients and helping them select the perfect attire."

"We have dressed generations of families for weddings, prom, homecoming, graduations, pageants, political events, special occasions, black ties, and everything else imaginable," Bond said. "It's been our privilege to share these special moments with so many people over the years, helping them look their best.”

Bond's Farewell Sale begins Thurs, August 5.

Well known for her support of area charities, Bond has facilitated countless fashion shows for high schools, hospitals, charities and foundations. "I was always happy to help when and where I could," Bond said smiling. "It was a lot of work but we enjoyed doing what we could to help groups raise money for their programs."

The closing of the boutique will enable Bond to focus on new opportunities in the fashion world. "I have a few things in mind that I'd like to do, knowing that I'll remain working in the industry in some way, but, of course a little rest and relaxation is first," she said smiling.
