Proctor District Women’s Clothing Shops – List Your Business Here!

Things are changing dramatically in the Proctor District where women’s clothing stores are concerned.

It looks like we might be looking for someone new to move to the district to serve the hundreds of clients that have shopped here for over 100 years!

What should a new shop carry?  Here are a few suggestions:

Classic style, boutique influence, designer labels, custom made, and practically every other style.

A shop owner should also love to talk with customers to help them find what they’re looking for and how to get the styles with a minimum of fuss.
