Througout July we've been celebrating Independent Retailer Month, highlighting everything special about Indie Retailers. We're always proud to be part of celebrating Independent Retailers, and truly believe that when you support an Independent Boutique you support an individual's dream. Deryane has built The Dressing Room up to the award-winning business that it is today, and Independent Retailer Month recognises all the hard work, passion and enthusiasm that drives small local businesses.
As part of this celebration, we're delving behind the scenes at The Dressing Room, and giving you a glimpse into the team that drives the business. Some faces you might recognise from the shopfloor, but some of us are hidden away working hard to ensure all our customers receive the best experience possible when shopping both in store and online. Behind every small business is the passionate team running it, so what better time to introduce you to team DR! If you missed the interviews with each team member, head over to our Facebook page to find out more about everyone - everything from our favourite Dressing Room brands to the covetable items at the top of our wishlists! For a quick round up of the best snippets, read on, & for the full interviews click each team member's name!. . .
