Chester Merchants attend show
Sharon Henry of Lassen Gift Company and Karen Blue of Trendz Boutique ventured to Atlanta where they attended a huge gift show, purchasing items for their stores. What made this trip unique is the way these resourceful ladies bought merchandise for their respective stores. Sharon and Karen focused on buying items without duplicating one another, but instead complemented each other’s merchandise. Each store carries its own distinct line of clothes, glassware, jewelry, bath and body products, home décor and more. This clever collaboration helps local commerce by giving shoppers the added sense of “big city” selection!
