Can independent stores survive against competition from the big chain stores? Do you prefer to shop in an independent dress shop – and if so why? If we don’t support our small, local stores we run the risk of losing them forever. The face of shopping is changing with the rise of internet sales and the quest for ever lower prices but what does that mean for prom dress, wedding dress and evening dress shopping.
We realise our customers have a choice – so what can you gain from shopping at an independent store like Celebrity.
Six reasons to support your local independent stockist:
- Personal service. This really is the biggest advantage a local independent offers against the chain stores. Here at Celebrity our staff love what they do or they wouldn’t be doing it! Staff with a passion for what they sell and a real enthusiasm for the job make a difference to the whole shopping experience – you just cant get this service with online or high street retailers.
- Product knowledge. Our staff know their stock, they know what looks good and how the dresses fit. Often they can suggest styles that will look amazing that you may not even have wanted to try on or even consider.
- Something different. Some of our prom and evening dresses are manufactured especially for Celebrity, so you just won’t see them anywhere else! We have one of a kind dresses and unusual items you wont see in every high street store.
- No Risk. When you shop online there is always the risk of an expensive mistake – especially if you purchase a cheap prom dress from an overseas website where you may not be able to return the item (or worse, it may not turn up!). Isn’t it better to see, feel, touch and try on such an important dress and to know exactly what your hard earned money is buying?
- Items for all pockets. Yes we have expensive evening dresses – we also have cheap evening dresses too! In fact our full length evening dresses start from an amazing £42 and we have a year round sale rail – so whether your budget is £50 or £500 you will always find something to suit your pocket with us.
- One stop shopping. We stock dresses, shoes, handbags, wraps, fascinators, hats, tiaras, earrings, necklaces, bracelets – in fact everything you need for that perfect look – no need to trawl round the shops or go anywhere else!
