A vision that was almost two years in the making has become reality for Susan MacDonald.
On Friday, May 24 MacDonald and her husband Mike opened the doors of Suzie’s Shoppe for the first day in business.
“I wanted the women of Princeton to be able to shop locally,” said Susan MacDonald.
Her vision is to provide a store where women can purchase quality clothing, in a wide selection of sizes, for all occasions at reasonable prices. It is priority for MacDonald to offer this in a relaxed and comfortable, clean environment with excellent customer service.
The MacDonald’s have created Suzie’s Shoppe complete with a freshly renovated store. They are very grateful for all the help and support they have received from their local and out-of-town friends during this endeavour.
“We are definitely not another thrift store in Princeton,” said MacDonald, “I am purchasing new inventory daily from a wide variety of sources—the Coast, Penticton and Calgary—to name a few.”
She also wants to assure customers that all consignment clothing will be pre-washed before it is presented for sale.
Suzie’s Shoppe offers women a one-stop location to purchase new and consignment clothing in a wide selection of sizes, for casual, professional and evening/formal wear needs. Accessories including jewelry, purses, scarves and footwear are available as well.
“You won’t see yourself coming down the street,” said Mary-ann Slager with a chuckle while discussing the variety of clothing available at the store.
MacDonald plans to build on the items available by bringing in a lingerie section and adding to the bridal, evening and formal wear selections.
Suzie’s Shoppe, located at 225 Bridge Street is open six days a week, Monday to Friday from 10 a.m., to 5 p.m. and 11 a.m., to 3 p.m., on Sundays.
“We hope to be embraced by the community,” said MacDonald, “come on in—we are looking forward to serving you.”
