Just 20 minutes from downtown Kingston and centrally located between Ottawa and Toronto, the picturesque town of Napanee attracts visitors from all three cities. Many of these visitors seek the fashions at Touch of Class Fashion Boutique, a store that’s made Napanee a veritable fashion destination.
Owner Teresa Hendrick first opened the women’s fashion boutique in 1991 with a loan of $4,000 from her father. “I didn’t have much money when I started,” says Teresa. “But over the last 24 years I’ve been able to build a business that’s been a great success story from day one.”
Teresa attributes her success to prayer, hard work and knowledgeable staff. “We are always changing and re-inventing ourselves, which has also been another key to our success,” says Teresa. “We offer an amazing selection of European and Canadian designs and I am always looking for something new and different.”
Colour is equally important to Teresa. “I love colour and I always make an effort to bring a variety of hues into the store,” she says. “Women like variety in their wardrobe and they’ve often commented over the years that colour was something they could always find in my store.”
Touch of Class attracts the fashionista aged 25 to 85 with a wide variety of fashion needs. “I’ve focused on dressing the career woman, but we also have a great selection for special events like weddings, mother-of-the-bride outfits, proms and more,” says Teresa. “We have everything from a great pair of skinny jeans to dresses that can go from the office to a cocktail party. It’s a one-stop shop where you can purchase it all, including sunglasses, jewelry, handbags, boots and shoes to complete your wardrobe.”
