Retail Therapist: Latest Concierge Service

Shopping in Downtown Fernandina BeachThe entire economy was looking at how retail would perform over the Holiday Season. That’s how central retail operates in the economy. Retail therapy therefore could be said to be a ‘service done to the whole business world and the world economics‘, for it is really mostly the females that keep the retailers on the Main Street going.

No wonder also that the latest service offered in Concierge Services is hotels adding a “Retail Therapist,” to their Guest Services.

“Shopping has become a big part of a travel experience,” said Joe Schwingler, general manager, EPIC. “People want to feel a connection with the city they’re traveling to and certainly, walking and exploring around from store to store gives visitors that feeling.”

Kimpton’s “Retail Therapists” are employees of the hotels and longtime residents of the city with self-proclaimed credentials in savvy shopping. Advice is complimentary and available to all who inquire either by email in advance of a stay, or in person at the hotel, according to a news release.
Kimpton already has such specialists in place at hotels in Chicago, Miami and New York City, among others.

Amelia Concierges has been offering this service from its inception, as shopping in the various categories of needs and wants requires some knowledge of what is available on Amelia Island, the Mainland Nassau County area and the Metropolitan Jacksonville area.
