The store has been at the same location since its inception. Well situated in a beautiful historic retail building on a busy well traveled street, there is excellent visibility from two main streets from passersby and automobile traffic. The 2400 sq. ft. space is elegantly decorated and thoughtfully laid out for ease of shopping. The rent is below market $4,152/month plus $1,450/month triple net.

The website could be expanded and optimized to push sales. Selling on ebay and other similar sites would drive revenues in addition. Opening the store on Sundays would give another day for weekend shoppers and increase monthly sales. Opening Pop Up locations in strategic shopping areas will boost sales, move merchandise and increase the customer base of online shopping.
There is only one other designer consignment store that would be competition. This store has the best reputation and brand recognition in the area. Gone are the days of going to the mall to pick up the same clothes everyone else has. Style seekers want one-of-a-kind treasures and they want to experience the hunt for themselves.
