Frugal Find: GorJess and LoveLeePosted: December 8, 2012
Picture this: It’s the weekend. You are getting together with friends either for dinner or going out for a night on the town. You want a new outfit for the special occasion or your closet just needs some sprucing up.
Where is a college girl from Glassboro supposed to go for unique pieces and a hip wardrobe? There is always the Deptford Mall, but that has limited stores. You could take the hike to the Cherry Hill Mall, fight for a parking spot and wait in long check-out lines. You could try to shop online, which means you could overpay for clothing you can’t try on beforehand, pay for shipping and wait for it to get to you.
What if I told you there was a fashion boutique right here in Glassboro? No drive, no waiting, no hassle. Too good to be true? Not since late November when the new store GorJess and LoveLee made its way to East High Street in downtown Glassboro.
GorJess and LoveLee is truly a gift to the fashionistas of Glassboro. This cute shop, opened by two sisters, Jessica and Leah, is the young entrepreneurs’ second store. After a year of booming business at their first store in Hammonton, the girls needed to expand.
They offer one-of-a-kind clothing for a great price. Isn’t that just music to your ears? It is no wonder the girls run such a successful business.
While meeting with Leah and learning more about the shop and the business side of things, I had to control myself from going on a shopping spree. The clothes are adorable and the accessories are a must-have. Leah said she looks for weird and different jewelry for the shop. The girls are constantly searching for things you wouldn’t be able to find in other stores.
Everything in the store is under $30, which is the best part. This is a place that can fit into a college girl’s budget.
The shop has clothing for all types of occasions, whether you’re looking for some new clothes for your day-to-day life or are in need of some “going out” attire.
The new shop is still in its early stages and will eventually carry more clothing, shoes and even nail polish.
If you are shopping for your holiday party outfit or simply want to update your wardrobe, be sure to check out GorJess and LoveLee first. You will not be disappointed.
The store will be holding a second location celebration on Dec. 14 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The girls will be celebrating a year of success along with the opening of a second location. Come out for refreshments and shopping.
