The Kardashians-owned DASH stores are closing, as revealed by Kim Kardashian West and said, "It's time to move on."
The sad news was released by the KKW Beauty makeup mogul on her website, saying that she and her sisters have decided to put an end to DASH stores that operated for almost 12 years. West further stated that the boutiques played a huge part in their lives.
DASH stores in Miami, New York, and Los Angeles have become popular during the spinoff Dash Dolls and are co-owned by West with Khloe and Kourtney Kardashian. The closure is because the Kardashians have become busy with their own business ventures and their family. The flagship boutique opened in 2006.
"We've been busy running our own brands, as well as being moms and balancing work with our families. We know in our hearts that it's time to move on," West said.
Indeed, the Kardashians have been busy, as witnessed by the public. West has her hands full with her third child, Chicago, which she welcomed in January via surrogacy, and managing her KKW Beauty makeup line.
Khloe is occupied with Good American, her jean line, which caters to all women of shapes and sizes. Apart from that, this 33-year-old reality star had just welcomed her baby girl, True, with NBA superstar Tristan Thompson.
As for Kourtney, she has three children with Scott Disick. She will also be collaborating with her sister, Kylie Jenner, for a new line, called KOURT X KYLIE.
DASH Stores In Shows
As much as they can't have time for their DASH stores anymore, the boutiques became popular for being featured in their reality show, Keeping Up with the Kardashians, especially during its earlier runs. The stores have been featured as well in other spinoffs, Kourtney and Kim Take New York and Kourtney and Kim Take Miami.
DASH Dolls premiered in 2015 and focused on the stores' employees, which they called that. The show tackled how the employees run the store while the owners were away.
Meanwhile, DASH stores have had some frightening incidences the past years. Last year, its Los Angeles branch got robbed of items that totaled between $1,400 and $1,600. Fortunately, authorities found a lead because of the closed-circuit television footage of the store.
In September last year, a woman entered the DASH store in Los Angeles and pointed a revolver at one of the employees. She then knocked things off the counter and then left the store. The woman returned a few hours later with a machete.
