I find shopping for clothes stressful
Can you believe that the majority of our customers would say that they actually dislike shopping. And by that, I mean the conventional method for finding clothes.. There are the rare few who enjoy nothing more than spending a large portion of their spare time going to shopping centres and department stores, wandering from shop to shop, rail to rail, searching for the perfect dress, maybe trying on five or six items.. and then going back to the very first shop to get the one they initially tried on. There are those who take pleasure from this process. And then there is the rest of us.
So, what is it that makes shopping in your local independent boutique such a different experience? The feedback that we hear more than anything is that you get the help and advice that is so often missing from the major chain stores. It really helps to have someone make suggestions, to encourage you to try new styles or different combinations. The staff in your local boutique tend to be much better educated about their product, how items fit and of how things go together and can offer you really good ideas.
So how do you get the most out of your experience of shopping in your local boutique? There are a few key things to remember. Small boutique owners are good at tuning in to the wants and needs of their customers and are great problem solvers. Tell them what you are looking for but try to keep an open mind. Be prepared to try things on even if you don’t think something will suit you. It is often a key part of the process to find out what works.
Stay open to moving out of your comfort zone and try things that you would not normally consider. Trust that no boutique owner wants you to feel pressurised and won’t try to make you buy something that you don’t feel comfortable in. They only want you to look and feel great. At the end of the day you are the best advert for them, if you have a good experience and find something lovely you’ll be sure to tell your friends.
