Creating Experiences and Meeting Clients Where They Are: A.K. Rikk’s Celebrates 30 Years

October 5, 2017

 

We are so excited to be featured in Rapid Growth Media today! Leandra Nisbet wrote a intriguing article about A.K. Rikk’s past 30 years in business and what the next chapter holds.

“Opened in October 1987, A.K. Rikk’s is a premier men’s and women’s apparel retailer, located in Cascade. In addition to their retail sales, team members travel to serve clients throughout the country and provide personal styling. The team, which proudly uses the word family to describe itself, strives to be more than a typical brick-and-mortar retail store. Walking up to the store, guests will note the cobblestone walkway. Upon entering, chandeliers adorn the ceiling, plush furniture abounds, and you will instantly be greeted by a friendly face. “The next chapter of the A.K. Rikk’s story will include the launch of their akrikks.com warehouse, which is set to occur in the next few months. The warehouse will also be located on 28th Street and will take the customer experience digital. It will feature new technology and additional team members. It will provide opportunities to further engage with people outside of the City and meet them where they are and how they’d like to be served.” – Leandra Nisbet

The Constant Change and Evolution of Fashion

September 25, 2017

We are so excited to have our very own Jim Murray, President of A.K. Rikk’s, Morgan Wallace, Personal Shopper, and Ben Tobar, Director of Business Development, featured in the most recent issue of Great Lakes By Design. The Sunflowerman created an exceptional illustration of Jim on the front cover and R.J. Weick wrote a compelling piece on the fashion industry and how A.K. Rikk’s stays ahead in a constantly changing industry . Make sure you read the article here: Great Lakes By Design: Recit de la mode

Our favorite quotes from this article:

“As of 2016, the global industry grew to a multi-trillion-dollar enterprise and is only expected to continue on this trajectory through 2017. In the United States, the apparel market was valued at more than $300 billion alone. The constant change and evolution in fashion – designers, vendors, clients and retailers- can at times be considered an industry-wide challenge, however it also poses an opportunity. ” – R.J. Weick

“Clothes come and go and the industry is constantly changing, but having a story behind a brand helps connect our clients to the product” – Wallace

“We are always customer-centered” – Murray

“It is what I love about the fashion industry. It moves faster than any other industry in the world” – Tobar
