We have so many options where to shop these days, it can be a bit overwhelming. It’s a great time of year to shop and save on great designer pieces because most stores are having their end-of-season sales. Daily we are bombarded with internet shopping sites that offer a pleathora of these designer options, however without the customer service and live help of an actual store. Now is a great time to research local boutiques in your area because most small stores are able to give better one on one attention during sales than the major department stores, which are usually swarming with crowds.
The best way to research all local boutiques in your area is to simply use a Google search by typing “boutique” and your zip code, example “90049″. You’ll be amazed at how many stores pop up that you never knew existed.
Great shopping tip: most small boutiques are negotiable during sale time and have much more authority to give deeper discounts than larger department stores. Ask a sales associate if you can have an extra percentage off if you buy more. Chances are they want to clear inventory and will reward you for gaining a multiple item sale.
