How did you get started?
I opened Leal twenty-five years ago because I loved fashion and loved boutique shopping. At that time, there were not many boutiques in Columbus. The City Center was thriving, but it mostly offered chain store options.
My vision was a specialty store offering customers fashions from emerging designers that could not be found anywhere else in Columbus, or even Ohio for that matter. I wanted my clients to have the chance to find their unique styles with the help of true in-store stylists.
What makes your shop unique?
While Leal has grown and evolved tremendously over the past twenty-five years, I have held true to my original vision. We offer unique items from emerging and established designers who cater to a boutique clientele.
We work hard to establish relationships with our clients so that we can help them realize their personal style and build a unique wardrobe that can both stand the test of time and evolve with fashion trends.
What would you like potential customers to know about your business?
Leal is focused on each client. We take time to listen to each individual, understand her style and establish a relationship. So when she leaves Leal she has had fun while finding something special that makes her feel fabulous.
