I’ve worked at the shop, previously called Sophia’s, since it opened in May 2010 and recently took over on 1st March 2016. I renamed the store Alyssa, after my daughter.
All 3 staff have stayed with the new shop, Heather Knight, Pam Wootton and Sue Ward, and we make a great team. We have a loyal customer base, as well as passing trade, and we pride ourselves in not being pushy sales people but we are there to help and advise customers if they want us to.
There are times when a customer will walk out with a new outfit that we have shown them, that they wouldn’t have picked themselves. We know we’ve done our job right when they come back and say how fabulous they feel in their new outfit!
The shop remains ladies wear and accessories, and I’ll be concentrating on our main brands of Joules, Seasalt, White Stuff and Braintree this year. Exciting times!
