Creekside Fashions owner Nancy Gattey wants her customers to walk out of her store looking amazing - and feeling even better.
“A great outfit can do that,” says Gattey, whose Port Coquitlam store celebrates its 15th anniversary this year.
Creekside has an enviable selection of fashion lines and accessories, including Joseph Ribkoff, Sandwich, Frank Lyman, French Dressing Jeans and Brighton. But what really sets the women’s clothing boutique apart is how Gattey and her staff connect with customers and deliver exceptional service and fashion advice.
“We have so many customers come in and say ‘I just hate going to the mall, I get lost there.’ We can save them hours of frustration and they can really have a fun shopping experience by coming here. We get to know our customers, understand their tastes, and have a real connection with them. And I think that’s what brings them back.”
Gattey and her staff have years of fashion experience and are passionate about helping their customers put together the perfect outfit for any occasion, right down to the shoes and accessories. The knowledgeable staff also understand what cuts and styles can help accentuate or flatter each customer’s body type.
“Maybe a customer comes in and doesn’t feel great about her figure,” says Gattey. “We can always turn that around right away and have her feeling good about herself, looking great in the outfit that she chose and leaving happy. That’s one of the most rewarding things.”
Twice a finalist for the Port Coquitlam small business of the year award, Creekside Fashions is also focused on giving back to the community. Creekside regularly hosts and participates in fashion show fundraisers, such as the Coquitlam Gogos gala to support the Stephen Lewis Foundation, Terry Fox Dry Grad, Glen Pine 50 Plus Society and Douglas College Bursaries, to name a few.
