Small Business Saturday: Smak Parlour
In this week’s episode of Small Business Saturday, we sat down with Reannoin Celins shop manager of Smak Parlour. Smak Parlour is located in the Old City, Philadelphia. The shop was founded 13 years ago, and became a staple Philadelphia women’s boutique. It was created by two high school, fashion-obsessed, best friends, Abby and Katie. Since opening its doors, Smak has been dedicated to being a one-stop fashion shop for both moms and daughters looking for the perfect look.
Smak Parlour is the perfect girl’s shopping heaven you need in your life. At Smak Parlour, you can find everything from shoes and accessories, to mugs and greeting cards. Smak Parlour not only sells all of the latest fashions, but they also design all of their own clothing. Smak’s flagship store in Old City actually began as a sewing space where the founders began their original clothing line called Smak Parlour Cut & Sew Collection. Smak Parlour Cut & Sew Collection showcases the perfect mix between vintage and contemporary fashion. This fashion line is not only sold in their Old City boutique, but also online and in other select clothing stores internationally. If there are any retail stores looking to add Smak to their collection, their clothing line can also be pursued wholesale.
This Black Friday, Smak Parlour is running a charity campaign called “Be A Doll and Help Us Fill Our U-Haul!” Taking place at their physical storefront, Smak has rented an entire U-Haul truck to park out front of the shop. It is Smak’s goal to completely fill the U-Haul by the end of the event. From 12pm to 6 pm, Smak will be accepting all donations of new and used toys. The toys will go to less fortunate children in Philadelphia. As an incentive, Smak will be giving away a $30 store gift card to anyone that donates. There will also be drink – alcoholic and non – and small bites available to everyone that stops by the event.
