Many of you may have heard that Terry Sadowski, the owner of Plaza Suite, is retiring and closing her stores in Downtown Greenville, and in Clemson. We are very sad to say goodbye to Plaza Suite as one of our premier vendors, but wanted to congratulate Terry on all her achievements as a Greenville businesswoman.
Our relationship with Terry has been pivotal to the success of Beija-Flor, and for a lot of other independent fashion brands in Greenville and beyond. Plaza Suite was our first official retailer, and since the beginning she has always been open to sharing her experience in the fashion industry and insights into the world of retailing. Her support and enthusiasm for our brand led us to open our first "shop-in-shop" Beija-Boutique in Plaza Suite in February of 2010 which has been a tremendous success.
She and her team at Plaza Suite have faithfully introduced our jeans to women from all over the country. She was a great ambassador not only for our brand, but for the city of Greenville. We will always be thankful for her generosity, faith in our brand, and most of all her friendship. And in a somewhat "follow-the-leader" industry such as fashion, we will never forget that she took a chance on our brand when lots of others would not.
Terry - thanks for not only helping us look our best for the past 16 years, but for all that you've done for Beija-Flor. Happy Retirement!
Kathy and Emilie
and the Beija-Flor team
