Kim Kardashian Announces DASH Stores Are Closing After 12 Years
By Liz Calvario
Kim Kardashian West and her family are officially closing their DASH stores after opening their first location in 2006.
The 37-year-old Keeping Up With the Kardashians reality star shared a statement on Thursday expressing her gratitude to their devoted "DASH dolls" for their support throughout the years. In the lengthy note, the mother of three explained that as the Kardashian family goes on to create their own business ventures and focus on their families, it's time to end this chapter of their lives.
"After nearly 12 years, my sisters and I have decided to close the doors of our DASH stores," Kim began. "We opened our first store as a family in 2006 and, since then, we have made so many lifelong memories. From opening locations in Los Angeles, Miami and New York, to having our Dash Dolls spin-off show, it's been such a huge part of our lives."

"We've loved running DASH, but in the last few years, we've all grown so much individually. We've been busy running our own brands, as well as being moms and balancing work with our families," she continued. "We know in our hearts that it's time to move on. We love our DASH Dolls and are so grateful for the amazing memories. And we have to give a special thanks to the DASH employees and all of the incredible fans and customers who have supported us throughout the years! We couldn't have done it without you. Thank you to everyone!"
In recent years, the Hollywood DASH store has had a series of terrifying incidents. Last year, in January, the store was robbed, with more than $1,000 of merchandise stolen. In September, a woman entered the location with a gun. Fortunately, no one was hurt and the woman was arrested.
Meanwhile, Kim is busy with her recent KKW Beauty collaboration with makeup artist Mario Dedivanovic. The rest of her family also welcomed the arrival of Khloe Kardashian's first child, daughter True, last week.
