Uptown Businesses Reunite Downtown

Two ribbon cutting ceremonies happened at noon Saturday in front of the Kenosha Orpheum building downtown.Bellissima’s Boutique, 5821 6th Ave. and Kenosha Beauty Supply 5829 6th Ave. were neighboring businesses in the Uptown district before a fire to the Plous Brothers building put them out of business in early August.

So their future plans suddenly confronted them and they decided to move downtown. “We’re Uptown girls in a Downtown World,” said Krista Maurer, owner of Bellissima’s Boutique.

The staff at Bellissima’s Boutique include, from left, Felicia and Jasiya Gaines, Krista Maurer (owner) and Nina Maurer.
Kenosha Beauty Supply is owned by husband and wife Renesha “Miss Lady Hair” Johnson-Langston and Patrick Langston.
