Downtown Business Spotlight
If you can do just one thing to support local this week – visit them at their store!
Kimber Woodard with Envy answers a few questions about managing a business downtown.
What drew you to Downtown?
We love the people, surrounding businesses, galleries and all over atmosphere that collectively makes up Downtown SGF. Being relatively close to three campuses, various restaurants, theaters and hotels offers an excellent customer base that we wouldn’t trade for anywhere else in town!
What unique products and services do you offer?
The clothing and accessories showcased in our store all have one thing in common.. none are priced over $40.00! Every week we get a new shipment of unique fashions straight from L.A. .. everything arriving in limited quantities! This ensures we can continue to receive new things often.. and that each person leaving Envy will have a distinctive look they feel beautiful in! Beyond that we guarantee that you will be greeted with a smiling face, excellent customer service from trained stylists, and a bag full of goodies that didn’t ‘break the bank’.
How do you cross-promote fellow Downtown businesses?
Though not a gallery, Envy extends hours for Art Walk every first Friday! We have also been a part of various Sidewalk Sales, Shop Small Events and have a decorated board in the front of our store housing flyers for various announcements and events going on around us. We put together an in-store ‘Downtown Valentine’s Package’ Giveaway this past February made up of various gift cards from surrounding downtown businesses including: PaPPo’s Pizzaria, Bookmarx, Bistro Market, Kokomo Tans, The Cup and Studio 417! It was a fun way for all of us to cross-promote and advertise together!
What is your vision for Downtown and your store over the next three years?
We enjoy so very much being a part of Downtown! By offering affordable fashions we plan to do exactly what we do now.. give customers such a great experience in both service and merchandise quality that they keep coming back to see us!
What can Springfieldians do to help your business?
Word of mouth is always a great form of advertising and we would love everyone to tell their friends and family about us! We are also very active on Facebook, Instagram and Twitter (@EnvySpringfield)– we update often, and frequently post giveaways and special online promotions!
What Discount or give-a-way can we offer as part of our week as the DSA spotlight?
During the week of July 6th we will be having our annual Sidewalk Sale. We will have racks of shirts, shorts and skirts starting at $5.99! $6.99 and $7.99 Dresses and $4.99 Bralettes! $1.00 tables and 2 for $10 tops inside! This is a sale you won’t want to miss out on!
