Anne Marie Foreman – Street Boutique Canada
I am a customer focused professional with extensive expertise in customer service. I worked as a small business manager for over 20 years balancing a myriad of tasks. I understand the demands of the day to day operations of running a small business. I launched Street Boutique with a different twist – let’s bring the shopping experience to the customer. I found a need in London Ontario’s west end there were no women’s boutiques serving the 35+ woman searching for quality fashion at affordable prices.
I started Street Boutique Canada at 56years old. I started Street Boutique because I always wanted to be an entrepreneur and found the mobile business concept a unique retail platform.
Street Boutique Canada is a mobile fashion truck. We renovated a courier truck to a beautiful boutique. We retail women’s fashion and accessories. We were one of the first few fashion trucks to hit the steeets in Canada.
I stumbled across the mobile platform and knew it would work in this area and many other areas across Ontario. We are in our 3rd year and have experienced increased awareness and increased sales around 20%. We would like to have 5-7 trucks across southwestern Ontario.
