Dresscode by Gita Goes Virtual!!!!

I think Dresscode has found their lucky charm...and that is Gita's mother! The past few days, Gita's mom has had to hold down the fort at the Cross Keys shop, and every time she has been there on her own, many customers have come in and purchased items!!!! I don't think we are going to let her go! :)

As we have two stores currently in Baltimore, staffing has been limited, inventory has been split up between the two stores, and many phone calls have been placed daily between the stores...

Well, ladies and gentlemen, welcome to 2009!!!

We connected between the two stores via web cam! It was brilliant!! Talk about innovation! We had a customer in Cross Keys who was looking to buy an earring, however, one of the pair was nowhere to be found! To the web cam we go! Gita dialed in, we connected via the web, she showed Frances and I what she was searching for, and wallah, in a matter of seconds we found it! Gosh, this was so much easier than having to describe the earring on the phone and saved much more time!!

Perhaps you may see some virtual selling from us in the in the future..........

So this week has brought more foot traffic into the stores, which is great, mostly in the evening time. However, people that come in are randomly entering and wondering what is going on at 100 International Drive, Retail Suite 102! It seems that people still do not know that the pop up shops are here!!!! But nonetheless, loving the idea that shops pop up every now and then in different locations....

I am heading home tomorrow! I get to escape right before the Christmas madness AND big snowstorm !! Aaahh to think in a week from now I will be relaxing on the beach, listening to the sound of the waves crash onto the shore under the warm, Miami sun...

As for now, I am going to take advantage of being indoors and enjoy a nice glass of mulled wine...I am going to make Frances join me so she de - frazzles a bit.... ;)

So, if you are in the area this weekend and can weather the storm, pop in for a glass of delicious mulled and browse the great merchandise here at Dresscode....only 6 shopping days left!!!!
