25 Years? Yes, Thanks To You!

vanagau_medallion_reducedAt the risk of writing one of those TLDR (Too Long, Didn’t Read) posts, I hope you’ll indulge me a couple minutes at year’s end.

In 2017, HWGA will celebrate 25 years. I pause every time I say that because it just doesn’t feel possible. And it wouldn’t have been possible – without you, our devoted customers, consignors, beautiful employees and friends. Thank you from the bottom of my heart.

What’s Happening?

We have some exciting new rewards, events and specials planned for 2017! Most of these will be announced and promoted through our free Here We Go Again Here We Go Again AppApp (although we’ll continue sending our twice-a-month emails and posting regularly on our Social Media). We’re very proud of our pretty little app, and hope you’ll download it now so you get all our exclusive news and deals.

You’ve been with us through ups & downs, and we’ve overcome a lot of things together. 2016 has been a challenging year for all of us, I think. It’s been a joy and a salve for us to weather it together. We’re happy to be your refuge.

For many small businesses, success can be fleeting and fickle. I want you all to know how much we truly appreciate your business. This turbulent year has challenged us all. But through it all, HWGA has renewed our commitment to serving you in the best ways we can, and to continually striving to improve. It’s our pleasure to greet you with a smile, to make your day a little better whenever we can, and to make sure you feel valued as our customer.

Thank you.

So, at the precipice of 25 years of designer consignment, I want to just say thank you for shopping and consigning with us, for telling your friends and acquaintances. HWGA needs you. I invite you to contact me directly if you have suggestions, comments or problems.

Anytime you need a hug, a smile or a happy word, stop in, we have them in abundance!

I wish you the most joyous of Holiday Seasons!

Author: Chris Gauger

Chris is a self-confessed resale fashionista. A fashion recycler from an early age, she learned the consignment business from her mother, Jan Gauger, at omt divine resale in Lincoln, Nebraska. Chris moved to Portland, Oregon in 1990 and immediately felt at home, among her people. She started Here We Go Again Deluxe Resale Boutique in 1992 and has never looked back. The second location of her store opened in 1997. Chris loves pretty much everything about clothes and fashion, but she has a serious boot and shoe addiction that is fed by the two stores. It's doubtful she will ever be recovered. In addition to clothes, Chris loves mentoring young women and teaching them about what it takes to run and manage a small business. She has employed some pretty remarkable women over the years and is grateful for all they've done to help grow Here We Go Again. She is a Hoosier by birth, but was raised in Nebraska. She has two sisters who continue to run the consignment store there, and one brother who has sense enough to stay out of the way. Her husband of twenty-seven years, is a land use planner and the fix-anything-guru that Chris relies upon more often than she'd like.
