AOA is one of the private labels being offered by Miss A.
The dollar-store strategy apparently translates online, too. ShopMissA.com, a three-year-old online beauty site, is hitting nearly $1 million in monthly sales.
The company was founded by Jean Baik, now 31, and her husband Kenneth Baik, who tapped their experience working in fashion, retail and imports to launch what they believe is the only dollar online beauty store. The site sells a mind-boggling 10,000 stockkeeping units including beauty, accessories and jewelry.
