The city of St. Charles has done an amazing job revitalizing the downtown area. There are a plethora of small boutiques that have sprung up in The Plaza shopping center.
Jeans & a Cute Top Shop is one of those businesses. Their clothing and accessories are stylish and trendy with a surprisingly affordable price point.
Currently, they are offering a free basic jean hem with the purchase of a regular priced pair of jeans.
Manager Lindsay Ward is a St. Charles native. I was able to speak with Lindsay about what running a business in downtown St. Charles meant to her.
"I've always been one to support the community and it's been great to see St. Charles getting retail back again," Ward said. "For so long, Geneva has had everything, so it's nice to see St. Charles getting small business."
I personally couldn't agree with her more.
While downtown St. Charles has always been known for their successful bar scene, it's a good feeling to see upscale retail stores opening for business.
The only way these businesses will survive is with support from the residents of St. Charles.
While it may be easier to drive down Randall Road to patronize one of the many larger chain stores in Geneva, St. Charles business owners need our support.
Stores like Jeans & a Cute Top Shop are making it easy to shop them with free offers.
Most tailors charge upwards of $20 for a proper jean hem. Anyone who has ever had to have a pair of jeans hemmed knows that just taking them to the cleaners isn't going to cut it.
While hemming a pair of jeans may appear to be simple, it's actually not. The tailor must have the correct sewing machine and keep the original hem so that the jeans don't look like they were taken apart improperly.
This free offer is a great way to find a fabulous pair of jeans without having to make another trip to make them fit.
