Leaving You in Good Hands
I am writing today to share with you some important news about an upcoming transition at Renee’s. What an honor and privilege it has been to work for you since 1993! Thanks to you I’ve lived the dream of successfully owning and operating a fine women’s apparel boutique in Everett. Renee’s has thrived because of your embrace, support and decision to shop local. I appreciate the trust you’ve placed in me to choose your clothing, offer opinions, and help you look and feel your best.
Now the on-going story of Renee’s continues. Plans are underway for Susan Nemo and Sharon Sanford to take ownership of Renee’s soon. I’m leaving you in good hands. “No one else will manage daily tasks, choose the clothing, and serve the established clientele as well as you,” I wrote to them recently. “I know the customers are going to love and appreciate both of you, just like I do.”
When I began to imagine a future beyond Renee’s, I kept you and our community in mind. My hope was that Renee’s would continue serving you. And Everett needs small businesses to provide diverse options for all. Fortunately timing was right for Sue and Sharon to grasp the baton and take Renee’s to the next level.
Sue and Sharon plan no major changes for Renee’s. They are keeping the name. “Our goal is to continue to maintain the high standards you have set, and to carry on the legacy you have created,” they wrote. “We want to keep Renee’s the best “Women’s Clothing” store in Snohomish County!” [As chosen by readers in the Daily Herald 2016 Readers’ Choice poll.] They are eager to offer unique clothing lines and hands-on, compassionate service you have come to rely on. “We embrace the challenge of owning Renee’s. It’s a classy, successful and well-established women’s clothing boutique,” they wrote.
The three of us will work together for a time to ensure a smooth transition. Their success hinges on building mutually satisfying relationships with you. Please come in to meet them. Plan now to attend an in-store welcome event next month.
This change brings an opportunity for you. Clearance items are now marked down 50% or more. Stop by and check out the sale. Also take a peek at the newest arrivals. You’ll find delicious fall arrivals from brands you’ve come to love: Nic and Zoe and Stella Carakasi collections, footwear by Fly London and Trippen, luxurious plush sweaters, and much more.
It’s been the greatest pleasure and adventure of my life to meet, serve, and develop a relationship with you over the last 23 years! Thank you for your support and love. I consider you my friends, and hope to continue our relationship outside of the store. I invite you to keep in touch on Facebook or email me any time. Eventually I will consider other employment opportunities that utilize my talents and skills. I also look forward to resting and investing time in my family, friends, health, home and travel.
We value your feedback. Call or email us with your comments and concerns. Sue, Sharon and I are available to answer any questions that may arise.
Please join me in celebration of 23 years of service and in welcoming Sue and Sharon!
With Sincere and Fond Regards,
