Local fashion enthusiasts are in for a treat this holiday season at Fashion Valley mall. It recently announced the launch of its personal shopper service, an amenity meant to enhance the customer experience during the holidays as a solution to the stress and struggles that can sometimes come with holiday shopping.
“Our goal is for each customer to enjoy a quality, convenient shopping experience at Fashion Valley,” said Francine Miley, director of marketing and business development at Fashion Valley. “The personal shopper program is a fantastic amenity for those looking to save time or just enjoy a customized shopping visit.”
Fashion Valley’s personal shopper can either function like a concierge and do the shopping for you, or she can escort you on a custom shopping tour of the center, to help with your tough-to-tackle gift list.
In addition, Fashion Valley’s new personal shopper will have even more choices of where to shop, with the recent addition of the Topshop popup at Nordstrom, newly opened Scotch & Soda, recently remodeled Steve Madden store and J.Jill and Halston. Heritage stores are also opening this fall.
