Lord & Taylor is the oldest luxury department store chain in North America with roots dating back to 1826. In 1914, Lord & Taylor made its move to our iconic building on Fifth Avenue where we continue to reside. We have a renewed focus on maintaining a “contemporary meets classical” brand identity. Along with maintaining our classic customer, we are capturing the young, trendy customer. Our focus at Lord & Taylor is simple: provide an exceptional customer experience. Consumers have multiple choices on where to shop, our mindset is to make our customers feel special about choosing Lord & Taylor!
2. Do you serve on any Chamber Committees?
I have served on the Ladies On Main committee for 2 years, The Chairmen’s Award Dinner committee for 2 years, a volunteer at the 2015 Golf Outing and I am a member of The Women’s Leadership Connection.
3. For your business, what is the biggest benefit of being a member of the Woodbridge Metro Chamber of Commerce?
Building business is all about building relationships. The Chamber provided me with the ability to network with local businesses and organizations. Together we were able to plan and execute events that benefited the community. The connections that were made would not have been possible without the partnership of the Chamber of Commerce.
4. What is your favorite Chamber event?
I have 2 favorites for two different reasons! Ladies On Main is a fun evening where women are able to have a true girls night out. The Chairmen’s Award Dinner is an evening that we are able to recognize businesses and individuals for their dedication and contributions to the community.
