Kittson is Coming to Downtown Fargo

Fargo fashionistas, rejoice — another boutique is coming to downtown Fargo this summer!

Kittson will open a third North Dakota location at 610 Main Avenue in Fargo, in the space currently occupied by Little Black Dress.


The shop’s lease begins on June 1 and owners Nicole Johnson and Tessa Himey are hoping for a mid-July opening so they can take advantage of extra visibility during the Downtown Street Fair July 18-20.

The store will stock women’s clothing, shoes and accessories in a luxurious atmosphere. “We definitely want to emit a feeling of sophistication and elegance,” said Nicole.

“Each one of our stores has a great big chandelier and elegant fixtures and comfortable seating. We want women to feel like they can be in a really high class atmosphere with top quality customer service, but then have our clothing be very reasonable in price too.”

Nicole and Tessa already run two other shops in the state, one in Bismarck and one in Grand Forks, and Nicole says fans of those stores can expect a similar experience, albeit one that’s more tailored to what the Fargo clientele wants and needs.

“We’re going to continue to be very broad in what products we offer,” said Nicole. “If there are more specific trends in a couple of months, we’ll definitely cater to that.”

Little Black Dress is transitioning into an online-only store, but they will remain in the space until May 31. Merchandise discounts will only get steeper as the shop nears its closing date, so shop Little Black Dress while you can.
