How’s business? When the economy slows, our customers repair pieces instead of purchasing new; or they buy from thrift stores and have them altered.
One thing you wish everyone knew about your business: We do it correctly, and want to make you look your best.
Something you offer that a customer won’t find elsewhere: Years of experience and professionalism.
Advice to young entrepreneurs: Often people sacrifice for price. There is a balance between price and quality. Pick one and do it well.
My first job: Restaurant waitress, then Tanner Industries.
Your role model (in business or in life generally): My mother.
The key to a successful business: Be friendly, do good work, be on time and offer service above and beyond.
