Up North Boutique closes W. Lakeside St. store

After two years, Up North Boutique, a retailer specializing in Northwoods-inspired apparel, jewelry, and home goods, closed its store at 404 W. Lakeside St. in Madison on Jan. 11, according to a Facebook post.

“Over the past few months, we have been on the hunt for a new location, but we just have not found the right fit,” the retailer wrote in a late December Facebook post. “And sadly, we were unable to extend our lease.”

The store’s owners said for now they will transition solely to online sales and focus more on wholesale side of their business.
