Well another year is almost gone – 3-1/2 years now for the Pretty Woman. It was definitely the worst year for the business, but I know I am not alone. The economy was bad and it seems to take longer for us up here in Maine to recover. There was an entire summer of construction out in front of the store. In business terms – yucky.
So, all “yuckiness” aside, the year has passed and a brighter future awaits. I have so much that I am thankful for: wonderful husband, supportive family, amazing landlady, and faithful customers. Thank you all so much.
We did some great fashion shows, had some fun after hours parties and I took a ton of pictures for the new website. www.prettywomandresses.com.
I have great plans for next year. I am on Facebook (“Like” the Pretty Woman to keep up with current events here.) The website is up and running now. My blog is ever-present. New fashions are coming in for spring. A new line of handbags is possible. Classes and/or demonstrations are happening once a month. Guest business owners will come in to speak once a month too. It promises to be a great year here. I hope you will join me for some or all of the events and spread the word that the Pretty Woman shopping experience is waiting for you and your friends!
Thank you again, to all of my loyal customers who braved the parking issues to support the store. You guys kept me up and running through 2010.
I wish all of my readers a Happy and Healthy New Year – 2011. Hope to see you soon.
