Building a Size-Inclusive Boutique with Jessica Throneburg of Little Details Boutique

Get ready for an important conversation that no apparel boutique owner who carries extended and plus sizes will want to miss. Our guest today is Jessica Throneburg, the founder and COO of Little Details Boutique. Not only is she a long-time friend of mine, but she’s also a valued member of The Boutique Hub community and has been in business for more than a decade! She joins the show today as the first guest of our 10th Anniversary Series to share the highs and lows of building a fully size-inclusive boutique.

Get comfortable and listen in as Jessica shares her approach to handling challenges and stumbling blocks with a determination to find solutions rather than vent. You’ll hear about how she makes customers feel welcome in her boutique, a critical issue plaguing the industry today, and what it takes to successfully manufacture apparel for all body shapes and sizes.
