Write a review of Society Girls Shop in our business directory

How did the business come to be?

Sisters Pamela Walls and Traci Weathers decided to embark upon a journey of ensuring young teen girls, college students and women could "look fabulous for less," thus opening a resale boutique offering just that—trendy attire at an affordable price. 

Why did you choose the area you did? 

Harrison Street (Oak Park Arts District) is a diverse family friendly area that was lacking the retail boutique experience. Therefore, we decided to open our location there.

What does your business offer?

We offer trendy attire (jeans, evening gowns, prom dresses, shoes, boots, etc.), jewelry, books, DVDs, handbags and more to our customers. We also offer consignment and new items as well.

What's something interesting about your business your customers might not know?

Starting June 1st, Society Girls Shop began to host its membership/network, "The Society Girls Club" for girls sixth to 12th grades. In addition, starting in June, we offered a number of classes, such as: Retails Sales, Dangers on the Internet, Make Me Fabulous, High School Prep, College Prep, Finance, Etiquette, God-Our Foundation, Branded and What Was I Born To Do. 

What's your most popular product? 

We actually don't have a most popular product. Women love to shop and we are here to service their needs the Society Girls way!
