Hi everyone! We are just hopping on real quick once again to welcome another new member to our buying team, Ashley Warren. Ashley recently graduated from the University of Missouri (Mizzou) in December 2018 with a degree in Textile and Apparel Management. Mizzou is located fairly close to our Home Office location, which is why we have such a great relationship with their program! Ashley is from Springfield, Missouri so she recently made the move a few hours Northeast to the STL area!
Here is a picture of Ashley posing near the Eiffel Tower while she was interning abroad in Paris, France!
Ashley is ready to take on new responsibilities by accepting this buying position at Glik’s. She is currently the buyer of Women’s Accessories and Prep Clothing. She is looking forward to exploring the STL area and learning about the buying process and the world of retail. She’s also excited about learning more in depth detail about relevant brands we buy and working closely with vendors, specifically Kendra Scott!
Her first few weeks working at HQ have flown by, being constantly busy getting into routine. On her second day of the job, Ashley was even given the experience to travel to her first trade show in Atlanta, Georgia! Ashley and our CEO, Jeff Glik, met with our biggest vendor Simply Southern to discuss their new Spring line. Although she had no idea what to expect, as this was her first trade show, she had a great time and said it was so much fun!
