St. Louis based Ann's Bra and Mastectomy Center has opened their fourth location in Cape Girardeau according to Tom Kelsey, commercial broker with Lorimont Place, Ltd who handled the recent lease transaction. Kelsey confirmed the company has opened in a 4,500 square-foot retail space in the Shawnee Center development located at the corner of Shawnee Parkway (Highway 74) and South Silver Springs Road. The location is near the Highway 74, Interstate 55 interchange.
Started in 1967, Ann's Bra Shop has served St. Louis women for over 47 years. They carry a huge inventory of “in stock” bras at each of their four locations. They are also specialists in providing bras to fit those with mastectomies and work with healthcare professionals to properly accommodate those needs. Additionally, the store also carries a large inventory of swimsuits and other related intimate apparel. The business model is one of commitment to bring together a wealth of intimate apparel product selections for full figure, full busted and plus size women in a tasteful and convenient environment with emphasis on customer service and satisfaction.
Other store locations include Chesterfield and Wentzville in Missouri and O'Fallon, Illinois. Catherine Burns, owner of the company, has served many customers in the Southeast Missouri area over the past several years and wanted to bring a store location to the region that would be more convenient for them to visit. The same products, selection and customer care will be evident here as with her locations in the St. Louis metro areas. Kelsey said the new 4,500 square-foot retail space was completely renovated by the landlord and is now stocked and open for business.
