Look! It's a Rainbow!

Rainbow Fashions for WomenThink about adorning Dudley Street with a bouquet of vibrant, colorful and fresh wedding flowers.

Or better still, think of the most beautiful cascade of colors you can imagine as the sun's rays are refracted through the rain drops in the sky. "Look! It's a rainbow."

Now you can say: "Look! It's a rainbow." every time you pass by 745 Dudley Street in Upham's Corner.

Rainbow Fashions for WomenThe new Rainbow is a moderately priced clothing store -- women's, junior, kids and plus sizes and shoes. It is a national chain with over 1000 stores nationwide headquartered in Brooklyn, NY. 

In the Boston area alone there are 14 stores including Grove Hall, American Legion Hwy., Mattapan, Hyde Park, Martin Luther King Blvd. and Morrissey Boulevard. Their two newest stores are here in Upham's Corner and Jamaica Plain, both opening the last week of August 2010.

We were invited inside on Thursday, August 26, 2010 a couple hours before the Grand Opening. Jerry Caslar is the exuberant and enthusiastic District Manager. He along with everybody else was smiling and having a great time.

It was so enjoyable to be in the store. Employees seemed to know exactly what to do to prepare for the opening. [more]
