The Simple Life Outfitters E-mail
Written by Bob Kalle   

The Simple Life Outfitters is owned and operated by Kelly and Kelly Morris and opened in December, 2010. Their children, Mandy and Korey, also work at the store.

After 13 years with Verizon, the opportunity presented itself. My wife, Kelly and I decided it was a good time for a change. So with my wife’s blessing, I took a retirement package and invested in the dream we have had for a long time. At that time, we decided (I mean our friends and ourselves) that the best name would be “The Simple Life Outfitters” for the simple reason that there are a lot of people that live this kind of life, so why not make it easy to find the kind of things we all share and wear, and put them in one place. Easy to find, with the right family atmosphere people are drawn to.
