What sets your business apart from your competition?
The personal attention and care we give our customers?it's not just about selling our products. In addition, the products that we do carry are fun and unique?just what you're looking for when you shop in a small boutique.
What was the inspiration for starting this business?
I started by selling jewelry, then I realized that, while I was showing women how important accessories are in our wardrobes, it would be even easier to demonstrate if I also offered the wardrobes to accessorize.
What is the best reaction you?ve ever gotten from a customer?
"I love this store," and, "It's so great to find clothes that aren't just for the super young and super skinny." That's especially gratifying when it comes from women who live in large cities and have lots of shops to compare us with.
What?s your favorite part about your job?
I love working with the customers and helping women choose things that make them feel beautiful.

As they enter the training circle at Curves, female guests come face-to-face with the smiles of other women. And just as points on a circle share a common distance from the circle's center, workout participants share the experiences of those nearby by trading stations throughout the 30-minute training session. One minute is spent on a piece of strength-training equipment built for feminine frames and designed to work two opposing muscle groups with a single movement. Exercisers then move on to a recovery station, where they run, jog, or dance to maintain heart rates and keep platforms in place during momentary losses of gravity.

After whirlwind shop-a-thons, visitors can relax on the porch of the Bracken Village location, which resides in a restored 100-year-old red barn that's witnessed more history than a time-traveling archaeologist.
