First Maryland Pink Chicken Now Open

Pink Chicken, a children’s clothing company, has just opened its first Maryland location. The company announced the location via social media earlier this month. “Hey, Bethesda, here we come! We are so excited to be opening up a new Pink Chicken store in Bethesda, MD -opening mid March! Our customers mean so much to us, and can’t wait to meet more of you in person so so soon!”

 

This is the first Maryland store for the children’s clothing company. It is located at 4925 Elm Street in the Shoppes of Bethesda, which was first reported by Robert Dyer. Founded in 2006, “Pink Chicken is a children’s clothing company known for collections of bright block prints, vintage-inspired patterns and not-so-basic basics that will have you walking on air from park to playdate, and beach to barbecue. Unique patterns make Pink Chicken pieces truly special. They take inspiration from decades past and faraway places, and design most of their prints and patterns in-house, with a few artist collabs along the way.”

Per Pink Chicken, “Stacey Fraser, founder and CEO of Pink Chicken, has always had a passion for vintage textiles. After nearly 15 years in the fashion corporate world, Stacey decided to take a break to focus on her two daughters. During nap times, she would sew garments made of a multitude of patterns from bright block prints to 60s florals. The spirit of sunny beach days and her love for vintage textiles came together to create easy and stylish pieces.

Giving back is a vital part of the Pink Chicken mission. Through the launch of their new giving back program, Pinkie Banks, they are aiming to instill the importance of giving back at a young age. Through partnerships with various organizations and charities such as Baby2Baby, Hearts of Gold and Every Mother Counts, they are providing support to mothers, children, and families in need. To date, they have donated 35,000 pieces of clothing and counting.”
