"Several times a week people come in and tell me that opening this store is big service to the community. They don't want to spend the time or the money to travel (to similar clothing stores in Lakewood or Brooklyn) and they can't find shells and/or long enough skirts in the "regular" stores."One of the nice things is that although this is a relatively small store, I try to have something for everyone and I have had, on more than one occasion, four generations of a family each get something in the store. Admittedly, having four generations visit the store is not common; it is common, though, for a mother and daughter to buy at the store. And both intergenerational situations are very gratifying to see."
