Corset Reopening

Tuesday, April 5th, 2011

Corset boutique reopens in Hopkins today. New owner Jodi Mayers, a former sales and marketing executive specializing in customer service training, plans to continue focusing on women 30 to 65, offering professional, contemporary and casual apparel, sizes 0 to 20. She tells me she’ll carry many of the same brands, but also intends to add European and Canadian lines, and develop relationships with local designers. She’s adding more denim as well as evening options – all at a range of price points. Mayer plans to relaunch Corset’s personal styling membership program in the fall – the transition should be smooth with original owner Carrie Leum consulting.

Corset Boutique in Hopkins, which has established itself as a resource for styling services, extended sizes and wearable looks for real women, is up for sale. Owner Carrie Leum plans to stay in the image business, but she’s ready to step away from the day to day of retailing. Rather than close up shop, the enterprising Leum, principal of her own Leum PR Group, is searching for someone to take over the business.  Meanwhile, a sale is on now: 50 to 75 percent off storewide. | Mpls.St.Paul Magazine © 2008 MSP Communications, Inc.
