Margaret O’Leary is well known in the Bay Area for her contemporary California casual knitwear, but she’s seeking to build her namesake brand’s recognition elsewhere.
A few months after opening a store in Manhattan Beach, Calif., Margaret O’Leary unveiled a 1,100-square-foot store on Abbot Kinney Boulevard in the Los Angeles neighborhood of Venice, its third store in Southern California and 10th overall. The push into Southern California is the precursor to a retail expansion eastward with the objective of doubling Margaret O’Leary’s store count in the next three years.
