This week’s “Business Spotlight” is Vida Beale Consignment, which is located at 29 S Church Street. We sat down with the owner, Kirsten Gross, to get the inside scoop.
1. Tell me about your business and what makes it unique.
Our vision is to empower women so they feel confident in their own unique style, present their best selves to the world, and not be forced to compromise on the affordability of today’s most desired fashion trends.
2. What services or products do you offer?
Vida Beale Consignment exists to provide cost-savvy, fashion-conscious women the ability to purchase on-trend, upscale, used clothing and accessories at an affordable price. We also sell furniture and home décor.
3. How long have you been in business?
We’ve been in West Chester for 1.5 years!
4. What do you love most about being located in West Chester?
I mean, what’s not to love?? West Chester is a destination! It’s a unique place with so much charm and small, college-town appeal. It has an energy all on its own. The community is particularly supportive of small businesses, which is something I’ve been very grateful for. I feel fortunate to both live and work here in the Borough.
5. What can you tell me about the culture or atmosphere of your business?
A visit to Vida Beale is kind of like going on an upscale treasure hunt! You can trust the impeccable clothing, accessories, and home furnishings you find here. Consignment stores like Vida Beale are unique in the retail industry. You will discover numerous brand names like Anthropologie, Lululemon, Athleta, J. Crew, Burberry, and so many more. We shop consignment too! And like you, we are watching our wallets and finding value in a good deal.
Everyone is welcome at Vida Beale! We value our customers as we do our friends.
6. Is there anything else you would like to share about your business?
We have new, spring inventory arriving daily. We are constantly restocking our clearance room with items at up to 75% off the original price. We also hold private shopping and social events here at the store. Call to inquire!
