Katy K Designs Western Wear and Ranch Dressing, a boutique clothing shop and 15-year Nashville staple located at 2407 12th Ave. S., is set to close May 22, according to the Nashville Scene.
According to Katy K Designs Western Wear and Ranch Dressing owner Katy Kattelman, the decision to close Katy K came when she learned her rent would double if she renewed her lease after April 30. Kattelman asked for a three-month extension (due to heavy customer traffic during the summer months), but was denied the extension. She was allowed to stay until May 30, though Kattelman says she will pay a higher rent that month.
Kattelman states that the building’s owners, Martha Thompson and Mary McMillen, have been approached several times by parties interested taking up space in the 12South neighborhood. She further states that she dealt directly with Robin Realty as a tenant, though the building’s owners had final say. Thompson and McMillen also own other properties in the area.
Kattelman came to Nashville from New York City. After finding a solid demand for her designs in Nashville, she made the move to Music City. The store features an eclectic mix of clothing for men and women, as well as vintage items and gifts. Among the artists who have worn Katy K designs are Jack White, Porter Waggoner, Lenny Kravtz, and Chelsea Clinton.
