A new men’s clothing store is listed as a tenant for the Woodside Village Shops now under construction along Rainbow Boulevard.
According to the layout on the development’s site, Ulah will occupy the space next to the Blue Sushi Sake Grill at the north end of the shops fronting Rainbow. Blue Sushi will be on the northern-most corner and Ulah right next door. Both are slated to be open early this fall.
Ulah is the creation of Joey Mendez and Buck Wimberly. Wimberly spent 11 years at Hallmark where he was a brand strategist. Mendez was a buyer at Hall’s and has been in men’s apparel industry for more than 15 years.
Ulah is described as a men’s apparel and lifestyle store. Here is a description from the store’s website:
“Joey and Buck created ULAH to serve today’s fashion forward and multi-dimensional man who is both rustic and modern, balancing a life that is both casual and professional, and whose experiences are both small-town and cosmopolitan. Their thoughtfully curated collection of products will range from accessible to aspirational and local to mainstream — serving the many dimensions of a man’s life with apparel, accessories, essentials, gifts, and masculine home decor.”
The Woodside Village development contains both retail and residential components. The retail locations will be on the ground floor with market-rate apartments above. After the first phase is completed, future plans call fro renovation and expansion of the Woodside club and a new retail and residential development on the south side of 47th Place.
