The main focus of The Wardrobe is top-notch customer service. Our associates are experts when it comes to style and will assist in any way they can. We offer tailoring to all clients in order to perfect any item purchased. If the store hours do not suit a client’s need, private in-store and at home appointments can be scheduled. Special delivery is always a must for those crucial times and demonstrates our commitment to convenience. Rewarding clients is always top priority and we are dedicated to making sure each trip to The Wardrobe exceeds expectation.
