Susan Todd, co-owner of The District on Main, and Nikki Hall, sales clerk, look forward to serving customers during the Christmas season.
Ever found yourself trying to figure out the perfect Christmas gift for a loved one? If so, Cari Bohannan and Susan Todd, co-owners of The District on Main, offer a personalized experience for those who need assistance with Christmas gift shopping.
“Women can visit the store and fill out a personal wish list for their loved ones, including their contact information,” says Susan. “Then,” says Cari, “we call their contacts and invite them to come in and shop from the personal wish list. It makes Christmas shopping so much easier and less stressful. Instead of running in a store and just grabbing something at the last minute, our service helps shoppers purchase meaningful gifts for their loved ones.”
Susan and Cari are also prepared to ask questions of those who are shopping for a loved one and don’t have the benefit of a personal shopping list to go by. “We know the key questions to ask,” says Susan. “By asking questions concerning an individual’s likes and dislikes, we can narrow down the choices.”
Choices in clothing, jewelry and other accessories are offered at The District on Main. The upscale boutique carries popular brands like Brighton, which includes jewelry, handbags, watches, sunglasses and charms. “We also carry a customized line of Brighton jewelry called Your True Colors,” says Cari.
Other popular items are Fossil handbags and watches, as well as Kendra Scott jewelry. Rifle is another popular brand that offers journals, phone cases, recipe boxes and note pads.
Other Christmas gift ideas include locally-made custom engraved cutting boards and cell phone cases. The boutique carries a wide array of clothing, perfect for the holidays. And if you’re attending a Christmas or New Year’s party, check out the fashionable apparel and accessories offered. What you find at The District is a wide array of affordable merchandise, often seen only in upscale department stores.
You’ll find Southern Marsh, Lauren James, Jadelynn Brooke and the Lucky Brand. “We have a wide variety of merchandise, including menswear,” says Cari. “No matter what your budget, we can help you select the perfect gift for that special person.”
Other gift-giving ideas include Christmas shirts, Aspen Bay candles and collegiate items. “We have new arrivals daily, including clothing brands like Tribal, Judith March and Missy Robertson,” adds Susan.
“We are here to personally help shoppers select the perfect gift for that special person in their life,” says Cari. “You don’t have to leave Claremore and fight the crowds in a larger town to do your Christmas shopping. By shopping local, you keep our tax dollars here in Rogers County. At the same time, you have less holiday stress and can find that perfect gift without a lot of hassle.” Gift certificates are available, and the store offers layaway until December 24.
