Well possibly…but at Skulpt we will tell you if it does!!
The last decade has seen an explosion in online shopping, as internet usage has become almost ubiquitous. For retailers, e-commerce is apparently the way forward as there are lower costs and fewer returned purchases. For example, retail industry analysis suggest less than 18% of online purchases are returned.
This is great for the retailer but perhaps not so great for the shopper – less than 18% purchases are returned not because they were perfect buys but rather as people we are inherently lazy with busy lives , hardwired to have inertia and simply often don’t bother to return. This is a retailers dream but not so good for your pocket and perhaps even your look!
For sure, for some commodity items such as hair accessories, it is simply easier and more convenient to shop online!
Personally I love to ‘window’ shop online, especially whats new this season, what’s in style, what would suit me, etc but for me nothing beats the in-store experience – even just browsing….. the smell, the sounds, the buzz! In fact sometimes the best thing to do is stay away or you get tempted to spend money!!
However what you do get in-store and can’t get online, is staff knowledge, experience, expert fitting advice and genuine unbiased opinion. For form fitting clothes such as Activewear apparel and Athleisure brands, it is more important than ever to get the style, fabric and textiles that flatter YOU. You simply can’t do that online.
So on Skulpt.ie, you will find really useful accessories that don’t need advice or fittting and also a small selection of our stock for online purchase.
We pride ourselves as being at the forefront of the revolution in women’s fashion toward clothes that suit a more active lifestyle and at the same time look great . Afterall looking good, is a step towards feeling great!
We now carry well over 20 different labels. These come with a huge selection of styles, fabrics, textiles, colours, cut and price points. Literally there is something for everyone and all budgets, but in the same way that an Armani classic piece will always have a different cut and style to say, Chanel, so for example, Vimmia will always have a different fabric and style to, say, Monreal or Koral.
Our staff are experienced and trained in fitting and will genuinely give you a honest opinion on what looks good, what works for you and what doesn’t. We can even tell how best to wash and care for your Activewear so that you get the most of the pieces you love.
We want our customers to come back again and again and again, so if an outfit doesn’t suit (pun intended), we’ll tell you – nicely!
So be sure to call in store or contact us online. We’d love to see you!
The Team @Skulpt.
