About Wilkins and Olander
Wilkins and Olander opened their doors in May of 1990 in Sturgeon Bay, WI (Door County). "W&O" was the brain child of Jennie and Carol, two former buyers from Marshall Field's. The name "Wilkins and Olander" was derived from each of their maternal grandmother's maiden names -- Wilkins was Carol's grandmother and Olander was Jennie's grandmother.
Their business grew as there were few better quality clothing stores in Sturgeon Bay. In the spring of 1992, Wilkins and Olander expanded, opening a store in Founder's Square in downtown Fish Creek. In 1999, the website was launched in an effort to keep in touch with their seasonal customer base, little did they know how the Internet would bring a whole other dimension to Wilkins and Olander.
Wilkins and Olander has been awarded Vera Bradley's Gold Dealer Award for excellence in product selection and service. We have also achieved Pandora Gold Dealer status, stocking the entire Pandora Jewelry line.
Since Wilkins and Olander's inception, Jennie and her husband have had two beautiful children, Claire and Jack, and have opened their own Great Harvest Bread store in the Pittsburgh area. Carol is still with Wilkins and Olander as they celebrate their 20th anniversary in May.
