The store was a little show place where women felt pretty.
Pros: i never had anyone work for me that i felt needed to be let go.
Cons: very little comunication with corperate.
White House Black Market is a clothing store catering to women age forty and under.
It was always enjoyable when customers came in and left with bags under their arms. They enjoyed the attention they received, felling like they had been in the movie Pretty Women when they left.
The store was small back then and I had the freedom to arrange items to fit the space. Customer lists were kept in order to let them know when new item had come in. We also held Private showings for frequent customers and there were always lots of laughs. I remember my first sidewalk sale and making sure the sidewalk was loaded with merchandise. Women packed the store and we beat our sales goal by over ten thousand dollars. It was a good team effort on everyone’s part.
The hardest part was problely trying to keep the store looking full in between seasons.
