WHITEFISH BAY, WI – November 19, 2009 – Whitefish Bay welcomes a fabulous new store on Silver Spring Drive, Simon Oliver Menswear, located at 318 E. Silver Spring Drive. The latest addition to Whitefish Bay’s great shopping district is a gorgeous menswear shop owned and operated by Perry Newsom of Shorewood. Newsom brings over twenty years of experience in the men’s fashion industry and is thrilled to return to the north shore area.
