Frances Heffernan opened its doors in 1932 in Winnetka, Illinois, an upscale village on the shores of Lake Michigan 20 miles from downtown Chicago. It quickly became the quintessential fine women's clothier serving the surrounding North Shore communities.

In March 2005, Maggie opened adjacent boutique Frannie in Winnetka.
