A Happy Birthday to Co-Owner Jason!

Hello Everyone,

In the past, my business partner/dad has written articles here talking about his experiences co-owning a lingerie store as well as being the father of a busty teenager, but today my family and I want to wish him a very happy birthday!  He has been a pivotal person both in our lives and in our business, and he never fails to help out where and when he can—whether by moving heavy furniture, running errands, delivering packages to the post office, or fighting with vendors.

Whenever I am at my lowest, my most vulnerable, he is there to encourage me with his kindness and empathy.  Losing our mom several years ago left my brother and me with deep emotional wounds, but we have been blessed to have our dad who always manages to find the way to help us through whatever personal crisis we experience.  All of the people who have been helped by our store also owe him a debt of gratitude because without him, A Sophisticated Pair would never have existed.  From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all that you do, and happy birthday!

Erica, Debbie, and LJ (aka my brother)

A Message From Debbie

I normally don’t say much as Erica takes care of that with doing the blog, newsletter and our social media.  However, I just wanted to say a few words to you, our customers.

Our three year anniversary is quickly becoming a distant memory with the next year set firmly in our sights.  I wanted to reflect on the last few years and personally thank our customers.  Without you, we wouldn’t still be here today.  As Erica mentioned a few blog posts back, there was a time we weren’t sure we’d make it past the first year.  Opening a new business is extremely difficult.  It takes a lot of hard work, personal sacrifice, sweat and a good many a tear.  Our immediate family has been very supportive of us.  But without you, our extended family, we would still be struggling.  You may consider yourself only a customer to us, but when you enter through our doors, you become a member of our store’s family and not just another department store statistic.

Thank you for helping making our dream come true.

Debbie
