You’ve heard it in malls, boutiques, and department stores before. “You need this.” as a sales associate is forcing a heinous sweater in your dressing room that you would never pick out in a million years. You think to yourself, “Why is the person so pushy?”
Or, you’re faced with the sad racks of clothes that were created for paper dolls or body types that just don’t match yours. The dimensions are all wrong or your size is tucked away in a little corner like the store is ashamed to carry it.
The worst is when the sales associate’s help and feedback is nowhere to be found or helpful when really needed. They are rude and short with you when finally located and of no assistance to you.
So, you climb back into your car, defeated from the day’s fruitless gathering. Quite frankly, you’re feeling a little self-conscious and down.
Here at THE NINES, we pride ourselves on the fact that we carry sizes for all body types, we are not a sales-driven team, so our opinion is honest and genuine, and the team we have is strengthened from its diverse members.
We figured it’s great to show how we are set apart from other stores, but why not hear it from Lauren herself?
1.) We celebrate every woman’s sense of style: “Many stores are geared for a specific woman. At THE NINES, I created this store to be able to help and style every woman who walks through the door. If a business woman walks in, I want to help her find outfits for work. If a college student needs casual outfits, I’ve got her covered. If a curvy woman is looking for trending clothes that flatter her, we can help. Whether you have a very simple style or you love cutting edge fashion, you can find it here. No matter your budget or craving for big name designer brands, we have Hudson Jeans or Steve Madden Shoes just to name a few!”
2.) Our goal is to help you make great outfits, not to make a sale: “Making someone feel great is better than any amount of money in my book. That’s why we tell our customers if they have a great pair of shoes at home and need the perfect dress to bring your shoes into our store so we can help them make the perfect outfit. Or, vice versa. If you find yourself with the perfect dress and you just need to accessorize, bring your dress into the store so we can help you put the icing on your outfit.”
3.) “Knowing how hard it can be to shop when I’m pressed for time, I hired some of the friendliest and most helpful personal shoppers to help not only give my customers honest feedback in the dressing room but help you put together outfits that you may not have put together yourself. My staff and I are truly here to serve you and help you have a great time while you shop! A diverse, down-to-earth group of women of all ages whose goal is to get you looking and feeling your best.”
THE NINES is an experience and we want to be sure that every woman is celebrated by making her feel her absolute best.
