Small Business Success Story: DoubleTake | CareerFuel.net

Blog post   •   Oct 05, 2012 12:53 EDT

Do you have a background in fashion or retail? Are you interested in starting a business that is perfect in any economy? Meet Marci Kessler, Founder and CEO of DoubleTake. Marci’s 20 year-old consignment business looks and feels like a boutique, offering very attractive prices for the smart shopper. Marci shared that her customers range from the owners of million dollar homes to their housekeepers. What keeps them coming back to her five stores? Value.  DoubleTake offers designer brands at a fraction of the price.

This is a business that works best in cities and towns that are affluent as it depends upon inventory coming from people with a lot of disposable income.

Hiring is Marci’s biggest challenge even though she offers benefits to full-time employees. Finding people who have a fashion sense, are good with people and are committed has proven to be difficult, even in this economy. Any one reading this who fits that description and lives in New Jersey, Marci would love to hear from you—she’s hiring!
