Nestled in the heart of Forest Grove, Penney Jaymes Boutique stands as a testament to friendship, humor, and a shared passion for shopping. What began as a helping hand from a best friend turned into a unique ownership journey for Michelle, Kensie and their newfound partner Amanda. The store’s name pays homage to Michelle’s late mother and Kensie’s grandmother, Penney, a vivacious woman with a fantastic sense of humor.

Penney Jaymes Boutique is not your typical store. It’s a blend of women’s clothing (up to size 3x), baby items, accessories, gifts, and home decor. The merchandise reflects current styles with a hint of western flair. The children’s section has baby and toddler clothing, as well as baby accessories and toys, while accessories for grownups range from high-end bags to snarky, funny, and sometimes inappropriate items, a nod to Penney’s infectious humor.

The trio’s love for shopping is evident in the ever-changing stock, with new items arriving daily. They’ve successfully transformed Penney’s shopping legacy into a profitable venture, ensuring that their clients have a diverse selection of unique gifts for every occasion.

Initially opening its doors in May at 1837 Pacific Ave., next to the beloved and supportive Growler Garage, Penney Jaymes Boutique has now relocated to 2230 Pacific Ave., doubling its space and offering an all-in-one-level shopping experience. The move has been a positive one, with the town of Forest Grove warmly embracing the store.

Penney Jaymes Boutique actively engages with the community, participating in events like the city’s wine walk. This annual event sees local retail stores partnering with wineries for a delightful tasting experience. The boutique’s commitment to supporting local businesses is evident, as they actively collaborate with neighboring stores and artists, promoting a thriving local shopping scene.

Currently, Penney Jaymes Boutique’s focus is on local customers, but as the summer approaches, they aim to participate in events like rodeos to expand their reach. Customers can also order online with free shipping for orders over $200 where available or they can pick up in-store, making it convenient for those who spot something they love.

Despite being relatively new to the Forest Grove retail scene, Penney Jaymes Boutique has quickly become a local favorite. Their dedication to providing unique, non-Amazon finds and supporting local businesses sets them apart. As they continue to grow, the trio remains committed to fostering a vibrant shopping environment in Forest Grove.
