My mom and I trekked to SoHo the other day and had a very successful time at the new store, Aritzia. This Canadian retailer is officially one of my favorite stores now because of the clothes and the fantastic customer service.
Going to some stores in SoHo can be hard for me because I usually don’t make huge purchases of clothes. This time, however, I did because the store had so much to offer. I bought 3 pairs of leggings, a bandeau and an adorable pleated skirt.
What’s interesting about some of their leggings is that they are made so you can cut them to the length you choose. They have small seams down the leg to show you where to cut with fabric scissors so you can tailor your own clothes. How cool is that?
But the one characteristic about this store that will make me come back is their customer service. I have never had so many people attend to me at a store. Not only that, but the employees weren’t pushing me to buy something I didn’t want. One of the sales associates was helping me style the skirt I bought by having me put on a spandex top that didn’t fit me at all. She clearly said, “I’m not pushing you to buy the shirt, I just want you to get an idea of what to wear with it.” I thought that was so great! Having worked in retail before, I have never been one to push consumers to buy products because that’s not how I would want to be treated. These girls knew exactly what their consumer wanted and how to sell it. Awesome job to their management!
Not only does Aritzia sell some of their own brand of merchandise, but they also sell J Brand jeans as well as Seven For All Mankind. The store is at the corner of Broadway and Spring Street in SoHo and is absolutely worth checking out. Some of their pieces are a bit pricey but others are very affordable. Everything I bought, besides the skirt, averaged to about $25, while the skirt was about $55.
