The store opened in 2009 on Augusta Street after owner Bentley Mitchell saw a need for “a shop catering to career women who wanted to dress fashionably without breaking the bank.” The clothing store offers upscale, designer and couture brands at an average of 60 percent off retail prices, in sizes 0-18.
More than 40,000 consignment pieces have exchanged hands in the boutique’s five years of operation.
“I set out to make Labels a store I would want to shop in,” said Mitchell. “We carry a great mix of high-quality brands at exceptional prices, thanks in large part to our consignor relations.”
Over the years, Mitchell says Labels has sold notable couture items, including 35 pairs of Louboutin shoes and more than 150 pieces of Chanel. Her hottest sellers are brands like J. Crew and Ann Taylor, and pieces from Tory Burch.
“The past five years have been some of the most challenging and rewarding times in my professional career,” says Mitchell. “It’s been a privilege to see the business grow and expand, and I’m excited to toast the next five years.”
