“ Our sales have also gone up [from the pop-up store], mainly because of the clothes we selected to sell that were reflective of both seasonal trends and trends in Dallas (picking the right clothes to sell is a very important part of getting a good sales number!). The 3-day event netted us at $80k.”
“ The pop-up allowed customers to develop an emotional connection with all that Huda embodies in the brand and enabled them to enter her world and physically experience it.”
“By far Storefront was the most proactive and responsive to our request for the right rental space. It wasn’t just the speed to meet our requirements. What differentiated Storefront, is that they ‘got our vision’ for our business. When Storefront told us that a staircase in Mayfair was available at a reasonable cost, we jumped at the chance”
“I just love how easy [Storefront] is. This is my first real business…and Storefront gave me a better idea of what I was getting into.”
