Online fashion subscription retailer JustFab’s first retail store brings to life the brand’s sophisticated but inviting personality and stylish attitude. The 3,000-sq.-ft. space, in the Glendale Galleria, Glendale, Calif., was designed to mirror the brand’s online shopping experience, with cohesive, trend-driven collections showcased against sleek white surfaces.

Customers are able to shop curated product displays, with trend story videos and in-store personal “stylists” offering inspiration and fashion advice on how to wear the trends featured. They can also register at the boutique for exclusive VIP member pricing that was previously available online only. Shoppers who don’t wish to join can opt to purchase items at regular retail price.

JustFab has merged technology and fashion at its retail store to deliver an efficient and seamless shopping. Using the app’s floor activity toolsets, JustFab associates are able to check inventory instantly or to send product requests from anywhere within the boutique on their iPad mini devices, eliminating the need for associates to physically check inventory or pull requested styles from the stockroom.

NRF reports retail sales for August were tepid

BY CSA STAFF

Although retail sales in August increased, they came in at a much slower pace than anticipated, according to the National Retail Federation. Sales (excluding automobiles, gas stations and restaurants) increased 0.1% seasonally adjusted from last month, and increased 3.9% unadjusted year-over-year.

According to data released Friday by the U.S. Census Bureau, total retail and food services sales (which include non-general merchandise categories such as automobiles, gasoline stations, and restaurants) in August increased 0.2% seasonally adjusted month-to-month and increased 4.7% adjusted year-over-year.

“Retail sales gains continue to be tepid,” said NRF chief economist Jack Kleinhenz. “Retail sales and employment, while measurably positive, have been disappointing over the last few months, and have been difficult to reconcile with consumer confidence. The data suggests that consumers remain cautious with their pocketbooks and purchases.”

Other findings from the August retail sales report include:

Building material and garden equipment and supplies dealer stores’ sales decreased 0.9% seasonally adjusted yet increased 5.7% unadjusted year-over-year.


Clothing and clothing accessories stores’ sales decreased 0.8% seasonally adjusted month-to-month yet increased 4.6% unadjusted year-over-year.


Health and personal care stores’ sales increased 0.6% seasonally adjusted month-to-month and increased 3.0% unadjusted year-over-year.

Electronics and appliance stores’ sales increased 0.8% seasonally-adjusted month-to-month and increased 3.1% unadjusted year-over-year.

Furniture and home furnishing stores’ sales increased 0.9% seasonally-adjusted month-to-month and increased 4.9% unadjusted year-over-year.


General merchandise stores’ sales decreased 0.2% seasonally-adjusted month-to-month yet increased 0.4% unadjusted year-over-year.

Non-store retailers’ sales increased 0.5% seasonally adjusted month-to-month and increased 8.8% unadjusted year-over-year.


Sporting goods, hobby, book and music stores’ sales decreased 0.5% seasonally adjusted month-to-month yet increased 3.7% unadjusted year-over-year.
