My eye catches the bright purple awning of ZuZu Fashion Boutique as I stroll downtown Barrie. Being in Shutdown makes me sad! I’m not able to visit this luxurious yet fun shop to browse what’s new…and there’s always something new at ZuZu
Tracey Baker, owner and “Fashioneer Extraordinaire” brings wonderful choices of high quality fashion to Barrie. I love to browse through everything from casual wear to “gala appropriate” special occasion wear. What makes it so much nicer, is that I find styles just not available in the malls.
Tracey and her staff have made it their mission to create such a fun and supportive environment. The feel of the shop is understated luxury with flair! They are truly the curators of high quality, unique, jewellery and amazing accessories in Barrie!
The mission statement of the shop makes me feel so welcome and understood.
The ZuZu Mission
“Our Mission is to inspire and support women in the expression of their own personal style”
“Our vision is that women everywhere will see their own beauty”
Something that I love is when I’m remembered by the staff in our boutique stores. I feel very assured that they’ll guide me to the pieces that suit me best.
Tracey and her staff are no exception! They know their merchandise so well. Without hesitation they’re able to accessorize each outfit if I wish.
Going into ZuZu makes me feel that I have a personal shopper working just for me. They understand what style I like best, yet enjoy showing me fashions that I may not have thought of for myself. I trust their judgment and often end up surprised with how each piece makes me feel.
That is something I think we all miss dearly during “Shutdown”. In talking to Tracey today, she wanted to be sure that everyone knows how much she appreciates the incredible support that she’s had from her patrons. “They’ve hung in!”
“Many clients have purchased BIA Gift Certificates; others have taken part in her Face book “Live” events, and/or virtual personal shopping experiences. And with curbside pick-up or free local delivery, customers feel safe!
Being that ZuZu is built on very dedicated one-on-one relationships; Tracey hopes that this “Shutdown” ends soon. She sends her best to everyone, asks that you follow her on Facebook and Instagram for day to day news…and continue to “Shop Local”.
