From the Queen City to the streets of Los Angeles, one local boutique owner is giving Cincinnati men a place to shop unique pieces from a variety of brands. Read on for more.
Cincy Chic: Tell us more about Righno!
Corey Bee, President and Executive Buyer at Righno Boutique: Righno is a contemporary men’s shop. We host brands from all over and sell everything from apparel to skin care, shoes, books, and even plants.
Cincy Chic: What’s the inspiration behind the shop?
Bee: The inspiration behind Righno is one’s lifestyle. It’s about being able to shop and complete not only your wardrobe but your lifestyle as well. We are also huge on good vibes and just sharing the good energy that we all need.
Cincy Chic: Who’s behind the business?
Bee: Honestly, without our staff we would be nothing, but I serve as our president and executive buyer. However, you won’t find much on me as I like the company to speak for itself. We are a brand so the face of Righno is Righno.
Cincy Chic: When did you launch Righno?
Bee: Righno officially launched in 2012. Our first store opened in 2014 as a pop-up in Indianapolis, Indiana. Then we did two pop-ups in Columbus. We’re currently only located in Cincinnati’s Over-the-Rhine neighborhood. We love it here and we are open seven days a week!
Cincy Chic: What types of apparel can readers find at the store?
Bee: We sell a mixture of apparel. Tops, bottoms, jackets. We are more of the casual vibe, however. We like to be comfortable all the time!
Cincy Chic: What are typical price points at Righno?
Bee: We have a pretty awesome price range, so everyone can afford something. Tops are from $18 to $100, bottoms are $46 to $175 (including pants and shorts), socks and underwear for $10-$28, skincare from $5-$58, and shoes from $20-$80.
Cincy Chic: What makes Righno unique?
Bee: We specialize in exclusive items. Rather it’s from a known brand or not. We will not get the products offered to the major stores. We also keep that true boutique vibe, so when something is gone, it’s gone. That way you know it’s unlikely that someone you see will be wearing the same outfit as you.
Cincy Chic: Is there anything new on the horizon for 2017?
Bee: In 2017 we hope to be opening our Los Angeles store! That’s been the dream since we started and we have been viewing a lot of spaces and found a few. We will be doing a walk-through of spaces this July. I’m also going to be opening up a new salad bar concept here in Over-the-Rhine, and it’ll be located on Main Street.
