Moscow, ID (PRWEB) August 07, 2012
DownEast, a high-style, low-price retailer that specializes in trendy fashions as well as modest clothing, now has a presence near the University of Idaho with the opening of a DownEast Clothing store in the Palouse Mall. The store carries the DownEast Basics line of high-design yet budget-friendly clothing for women, teens and girls, as well as some of the most popular other national fashion brands for women, men and children – at prices often 50 to 70 percent off the suggested retail.
To celebrate the new store, DownEast will host an official grand opening event – giving shoppers a chance to enter a “Shopping’s More Fun with Your Friends” giveaway.
“We enjoy a rapidly expanding footprint in Idaho, with the Palouse Mall location marking the eighth DownEast store in the state,” said Rich Israelsen, chief operating officer for DownEast. “The tremendous success of our other Idaho stores made it a simple decision for us to open in Moscow. We exceeded our first-week sales expectations and we’re very appreciative of the enthusiastic response from local shoppers.”
Israelsen added that the company is especially excited to share its “boutique on a budget” philosophy with students at UI. The just-off-campus location puts DownEast’s stylish, quality clothing within their easy reach – and at prices they can truly afford.
DownEast Offers “Shopping’s More Fun with Your Friends” Giveaway
