I came from Cleveland, Ohio to shop for a Mother of the Groom dress at Avenue Fashions. My cousin told me I'd find exactly what I was looking for in this fabulous shop and I wasn't disappointed. Sandy and Inge worked to help me find just the right gown. After pinning down styles and budget, they proceeded to go through the selection with me and before I knew it, I had six gorgeous dresses to choose from. Expert knowledge and advice made this the easiest gown selection I've ever experienced. Sandy knows how to take care of a customer and make her feel special, a skill I really value in today's retail climate. No specialty department store can compare. When I'd finished choosing my gown, I thought I was done, but ended up finding a great outfit for the rehearsal dinner. Avenue is my go-to store for any special occasion now. I have two more sons who, I hope, will get married some day. The trip to Chicago and Avenue Fashions is more than worth it to me. I love the store and Sandy!
