Meet 850 Blues! Owned by Kristyn Mancini, 850 Blues is a boutique clothing store that offers apparel, denim and accessories for women of all ages and sizes. Following her father’s passing 8 years ago, Kristyn opened the store as an all-men’s denim store as a tribute to him. After the high demand she received from her female shoppers to include jeans for them, she began offering women’s clothing and the female demand quickly surpassed that of her male customers. Now, 850 Blues exclusively offers boutique women’s apparel and is one of the finest boutique clothing stores in the area.

850 Blues provides a welcoming, low-pressure shopping experience with a wonderfully helpful staff that is happy to assist you in picking out an outfit. Contrary to popular belief, they are no longer just a jeans store; They offer boutique tops and accessories in addition to the denim they’re known so well for. Additionally, they have low starting prices, making ‘shopping boutique’ very affordable.

One of our favorite aspects of local business is the sense of community they offer and this shop is no exception. Shopping local with 850 Blues means your dollar goes right back into the community, as they are a large supporter of other local businesses in the area and a corporate sponsor of Akron Children’s Hospital. As a woman-owned business they also do a lot to advance female entrepreneurship in our community.
