Barbara Katz

Our first location began in Barbara Katz's own carport in 1959.  There, at age 30, she started by selling clothes to her neighbors and friends to support her three small children.

A few years later, the young entrepreneur outgrew her home store and opened her first free standing location in North Miami Beach.  Three more stores were opened in South Miami, Bal Harbour and Plantation, Florida.  Her fifth store, in Boca Raton, opened in the early 1980's, which is ultimately where Ms. Katz decided to reside.

Being a meticulous, hands-on owner and realizing the potential of the Boca are, Barbara Katz closed her other locations to focus and grow the business  in Glades Plaza. 

The specialty store has come full circle by once again catering to the young woman that Ms. Katz was herself when she began her business, while maintaining the loyal following the store has cultivated.  Barbara Katz has adapted to the times and will continue to be the leading designer specialty store in South Florida that draws customers from all over the world.
