Owner Pat Van Es has created a shopping oasis in an area where more retail was definitely needed.
Pat used to hear women talk about going out of town to shop for the latest fashions or an outfit for that special occasion. She knew they were keen to support local businesses. Her fashion training and 30+ years experience in the industry teamed up with her entrepreneurial spirit to look at how she could fill the demand for the sophisticated 30+ woman.
Four things were essential to Pat when she was envisioning Muse. An outstanding design, excellent customer service, stylish, top quality fashions, and affordability.
After several months of planning, renovations and decorating, Muse opened in March 2013.
Pat’s high standards are immediately visible when you step into her shop. She had a clear vision of what she wanted. Muse is warm and inviting. It’s a relaxing place to pick out a special outfit with a scarf or a handbag to match. There are wonderful splashes of colour in the visual merchandising and displays of Muse.
Muse’s sales associates are trained to offer the very best service to their clients. Most have been in the industry for many years and are up on the latest trends. As for the merchandise, Pat spends days personally selecting it with a view to style and affordability. Muse presents a variety of looks that reflect Pat’s philosophy... There is no age limit on looking fashionable!
