For this week’s “Business Spotlight” we sat down with Ilysa Biles, Owner of BLINK, which is located at 136 West Gay Street!
1. Tell me about your store and any particular things you believe make it unique.
BLINK opened in May 2002 with a few brands and a dream…now 20 years later (to the day!) we are busting at the seam with over 25-30 of our favorite brands that we select for our customers and friends! Some people have been shopping with us from 8th-grade dances and high school homecoming to weddings, bachelorette parties, and now baby showers. We are truly blessed to have the opportunity to dress, laugh, and hang in this amazing downtown community!
2. What services or products do you offer?
With new deliveries arriving every day, BLINK is always stocked with an amazing selection from the latest contemporary designers and premium denim for every occasion.
3. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?
There is so much to love about being located in Downtown West Chester, but we have to say our favorite part is the charm and people! I love how families, couples, and friends can wander the streets and enjoy an amazing variety of boutiques, restaurants, cafes, and places to just chill, sip a coffee, and take in the day.
4. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your store?
My main goal at BLINK is to create a fun and chill environment that feels like you are shopping in your BFF’s amazing closet! We want our customers to have tons of options without being overwhelmed, so we offer novelty pieces, amazing staples, and everything pretty at a few different price points.
5. Is there anything else you would like to share about your store?
Come celebrate our 20 years with us! Shop Beauty & Spring with 25% off EVERYTHING now through Sunday. And join us on Thursday, May 12th from 11am-8pm for an anniversary party! You can sip champagne, enjoy some sweet treats, and potentially win giveaways and gift card raffles. Hope to see you there!
