About Mainstream Boutique
Mainstream Boutique was founded in 1991 by Marie DeNicola, whose previous experience included working in the LA garment district as a buyer, merchandiser and planner. After her husband’s job took her family to Minnesota, she started a direct-sales company selling apparel and accessories. By 1998, Mainstream Boutique had evolved into a franchised retail concept.
