What could be better then working in the field of fashion? Put them
together and you would have the perfect opportunity.
Few businesses are as original as the fashion boutique,
especially in the world of big box retailers and megastores. If your town
has a unique little boutique that sells
new clothing or
that's probably one interesting place to
typically stock clothing and
fashion accessories that can't be found in
particularly if vintage items are included in the inventory.
And these boutique
are often designed and decorated according to the style of the proprietor,
giving them a one-of-a-kind vibe that you just don't get in a
large department store chain.
That is part of the secret to great boutique
style: usually a boutique sticks with one or two types of merchandise and
concentrates on that. The most successful
boutiques don't try to be all things to all shoppers. I
guess we can think of them as the "unique" boutique...
People enjoy shopping at
fashion boutiques because,
it's simply more fun than taking a list to a
discount retailer and filling a shopping cart. Consumers
actually enjoy the personal attention they find
at a boutique, and a well designed and decorated boutique can feel like a
haven to most shoppers.
Most definitely during busy shopping seasons
