Ha ha - probably not what you are thinking!
In talking with the company that is supplying the denim line to Zoe, they informed me that they have changed showrooms and I will now be dealing with a different person and a different wholesaler for future denim orders. This is one area of the business that I'd love to understand more how it works. How does a line decide whether or not to do their own wholesaling (as some of mine lines do) or to use a showroom/rep agency? And how do they go about choosing a showroom? And do they write contracts that have to be rebid? Still lots to learn.
But, if you are looking for some great jeans, I do recommend Zoe's denim line - Red Engine Jeans. I have two pair and absolutely love them. And, they are designed and manufactured in the US (in California).
Yesterday was also the day of quotations. I received the quotation from the construction company as well as the buildout schedule. I have sent these on to my landlord for review and they have said they will complete their review early next week. I also got the quotation for the Merchandising layout and was very pleased with it. I am reviewing it this weekend and have a few questions/revisions but am overall satisfied.
I'm really hoping everything can go smoothly and we can complete the permitting process and start construction next week. Stay tuned!
