Family-Owned Boutique and Gift Shop Starts Offering Innovative Solutions For Their Customers!
trend. is a family-owned boutique and gift shop that opened in 2011. Specializing in unique gifts, fashionable apparel, monogrammed products, and finishing touches for your home. trend. is the perfect place to shop local and get your "fix" or find gifts for everyone on your list! Shop at one of their convenient locations or visit their User-Friendly website!
As a result of COVID-19, they've had to shut down their stores for a few weeks. While they continue to extend hours to fit their loyal customers' needs, they're missing the "visitor" traffic that they once had. There aren't as many out of town shoppers as there once was. They've also seen a decline in community shopping events that they typically participate in.
The need to purchase gifts for others has declined, and the demand for everyday items has increased. Like many retailers, we have seen a surge in masks, soaps, blue light glasses, and even loungewear!
Throughout the economic crisis, they've become very innovative by hosting personal shopping appointments, whether via FaceTime or hosting times, where the clients come in without worrying about crowds.
They have also been fortunate to increase product assortment in their online shop! They offer customers a "Buy Online, Pick Up Curbside" option or even a Delivery option for those within 5 miles of a store.
With the holidays fast approaching, gift registries will start being offered to make shopping easy and convenient. They have participated in online vendor events to keep engaged with their shoppers, which has been an excellent opportunity to allow customers to shop from home.
Community support is crucial as they head into the last quarter of the year and into 2021. Support can be as easy as liking and sharing their social media posts. It can also be recommending trend. to friends looking for suggestions for gift ideas or home decor.
One of the best ways is, of course, to go in and visit! They have plenty of space to shop and keep socially distant and are more than happy to get items ready for you to drive up and pick up!
