Ted Vayos, BODY: Describe your store.
James Mastrolacasa: We are in a 6,000 square foot building with an extremely large open floor plan. All merchandise is organized in a well thought out selection of lingerie, shoes, fantasy costumes, edible items, beautiful body adhesives such as pasties, tattoos, art stick on’s, artificial lashes, nails and full body glitter. The art work on the walls inside of the building is very fun, playful and has a colorful and vivid design. There are show cases displayed all around the inside of the open floor plan with plenty of lighting throughout. The store also provides a full #9 door refrigerator with all of the most popular beverages and energy drinks. The open floor plan inside makes it a lot easier on the customers to browse and make selections within a timely manner leaving more time to enjoy purchases rather than time spent inside the store.
