Even stores are reinventing themselves these days; getting face lifts, makeovers and doing whatever they can do attract new customers and revive old ones. Anthropology has always seemed like a store that can withstand anything to me. They have such an eclectic array of merchandise, that it has always felt like there is bound to be something for everyone…….not every store can give off that feeling in my opinion. I sort of have a soft spot for them since they were the first big store to order my handbag line back when they only had 14 stores……now they have more than 32 stores nationally. I love how they take vintage clothes, accessories or even home items and recreate them with a modern twist to they are marketable in today's world. They KNOW their target market and it is clear when you walk into their store – everything has it's place. the merchandising is extremely well thought out and is apparent throughout the store with colors, textures and styles melding together to appeal to the eye.

I came across this article a couple months ago and wanted to share it with you. Anthropology has launched a Shoes & Accessories store next to one of their better store locations. I love how even the brands we might feel are invincible, reinvent themselves too!
