    Pros

    Quality fabric and construction of womens apparel. Loyal client base with constant promos for growing credit card holders.

    Company needs better register and store computers. Ordering for the customer time consuming.... Needs better software for opening information for managers with operations.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Be sure to hire happy individuals who really like people and have respect for each other. Can they laugh and work hard??
