We are so excited to introduce you to Anna Cerimele, our newest Assistant Accessory Buyer at Glik’s! From the hometown of Saline, Michigan, Anna grew up with her pet cat, Lasslow, and a young love for dance (jazz & ballet) that she carried through her college years. In May of 2019, she graduated from Central Michigan University with a degree in Fashion Merchandising and a minor in Marketing. Soon after graduation, she accepted her position with Glik’s and moved to the St. Louis area in order to start her new chapter in the fashion industry!
In order to become more familiar with Glik’s and our customers, Anna interned at our Edwardsville, Illinois location for two weeks before stepping into Home Office for the start of her buying career. She loved getting to learn more about this side of the industry because she was able to gain a great understanding of what actually sells in a Glik’s brick and mortar store! This was also a great warm up for our company computer system and inventory layout in order to feel confident when she walked into H.O. for her first week of buying.
During our interview, Anna shared that she was most excited about being able to see her personal fashion buys actually appear in our stores for purchase! She said that it will be really cool to walk into a store and say, “I’m the reason why that accessory is here!” and we completely agree. We are so excited about the amazing impact that Anna will have on our accessory selection at Glik’s (in stores and online) and we can’t wait to watch the rest of her journey with our company!
