This past Friday, May 2, 2014 marked the opening of Glik’s boutique, our first-ever women’s boutique, located at 37 East 8th Street in beautiful Holland, Michigan. While Glik’s had opened a store in Holland a year and a half prior that carried both men’s and women’s apparel, the inspiration for Glik’s Boutique came after the Holland customers requested more women’s fashion. While maxed out in space in our then current location, the opportunity arose to form both a Men’s Shop and a Women’s Boutique.
So at 10:00 am Friday morning, we cut the ribbon for the Grand Opening of Glik’s Boutique while just moments before we had celebrated the opening of the Glik’s Men’s Shop. And that wasn’t the only event being celebrated in Holland that morning.
Friday kicked off the 85th annual Tulip Time Festival in Holland, where there are around 6 million tulips planted and ready to soak up the springtime sun. Mr. Glik, pictured above, was in attendance along with owners and chief merchants Jeff and Jim Glik.
It takes a lot of time, effort, and talent to open a new store. We could not have made opening two incredible stores possible without all the hard work from our amazing employees. All elements of preparation are necessary for a successful store opening. Everything from painting the interiors to prepping the merchandise for customers is important.
Our amazing visual merchandising team has made this Glik’s Boutique one-of-a-kind. They have re-purposed old bicycles, luggage, clipboards, and picture frames to create unique displays for the merchandise.
Everything from chic dresses, tops, jeans, and accessories to the latest fashion footwear is now available. With brands like Everly Clothing, Love Stitch, Silver Jeans, L.A. Idol, Alex and Ani, Pink Pewter, and Sperry, there is sure to be something for everyone! The Glik’s Boutique will also stay up-to-date with L.A. fast fashion and carry the hottest trends. These trends include maxi dresses and skirts, floral prints, crop tops, high-waisted jeans and shorts, gladiator sandals, and statement jewelry.
