1. Unique Merchandise
You know that feeling you get when you show up at work, school, or an event with the same outfit as another person? You make some lame joke and try to brush it off but you can't help but feel a bit miffed that someone has your outfit. Well, when you shop at boutiques not only can you find merchandise that is unique but also quantities are limited. You can rest assured that your outfit or accessory will be just as unique as YOU!
2. Customer Service
It's no secret that boutique customer service trumps big retailers. There's a reason boutiques usually have good yelp reviews, the fact is smaller spaces and less people allow for more personalized service. This is especially beneficial if you want to take some time for more personalized styling tips or picking out the perfect gift for a special someone.
3. No Long Queues or Parking Madness
Just a few weeks ago, I visited Chinook Mall and trying to find parking was absolutely horrendous and it's not even Christmas time. Luckily, at boutiques you usually don't have to fight your way through parking stalls and rarely ever do you have to wait in a never ending line at the till. You can cut down on your shopping hours and spend your time where it counts, with loved ones.
4. Extra Perks
Boutiques are known for going out of their way to give you the best service. Many small businesses will offer complimentary gift wrapping (we have mastered the perfect bows) or some refreshments while you shop. Not to mention there are always exclusives and promotions to be on the look out for.
5. Supports Local Economy
One of the best ways to give back to your community is to support local businesses. We at Sister's do our best to give back through charitable causes, volunteer efforts, and more. Help to make your neighbourhood a better place to live and look good doing it by shopping at a neighbourhood boutique.
