In shocking news today, Miranda Lambert made the decision to close her Pink Pistol boutique in Tishomingo, Oklahoma. This business helped put the town on the map and bring in new people to check it out. This is where Miranda lived with her ex-husband Blake Shelton, so it does make sense that she would want to move on. The crazy thing is that news came out that Blake actually bought the building where Pink Pistol was located. E! Online was able to talk to Blake Shelton and find out what is going on.
Miranda had this business for three years, and fans from all over loved to check it out. She made the decision to close this store. The confusing part is that Blake bought the building. It isn’t like it was something he got in their divorce. He gave a statement to E! Online about what is going on.
“As a resident of Tishomingo, I am very sorry that the Pink Pistol has decided to move its operations out of the area. We all as a community appreciate everything it has done for our town. As for the actual properties left behind…I was offered the opportunity to buy them and I have a plan brewing.”
Blake Shelton did also respond to a fan on Twitter about the purchase, and he made sure to use the word brewing again. Blake said, “”PP left town. I bought the building it used to be in though!!! And yes something is brewing…”
The fact that Blake Shelton said brewing more than once has everyone curious what is going on with him. It does sound like he could be opening a brewery. Blake will reveal the details of what is going on as soon as he is ready. Whatever he is doing is in the very early stages because he Blake just officially purchased the Pink Pistol building.
Miranda Lambert isn’t saying a word about why Blake Shelton is the one who bought her building. She is simply saying that she decided to move the business to her hometown of Lindale, Texas and that it will reopen in August. Everyone would love to hear her side of why Blake purchased the building.
Taste of Country shared the details about Miranda Lambert deciding to close her store. This is not the only business that Miranda Lambert has in the Tishomingo area. Miranda also has no-kill dog shelter called Redemption Ranch and the Ladysmith Bed & Breakfast. Both of these businesses are still open, and she hasn’t mentioned closing them at this time. If Miranda is ready to move on from Oklahoma, then these might be the next to go. Miranda’s statement made it sound like she might be ready to move on in a press release.
“I want to send a heartfelt thank you to all the employees who worked hard to help me bring the store in Tishomingo to life, as well as the patrons who came to experience the Pink Pistol and supported the store. Sometimes you need to close a chapter to build on a new beginning or go back home.”
Miranda already had a Pink Pistol boutique in her hometown of Lindale, Texas. Now she will just be joining the two businesses and making it one big huge boutique. It sounds like if you want to head to a Pink Pistol, you will have to go to Texas. It will be located at 120 E North St. in Lindale at the Cannery.
