It's one-stop shopping for the customer."--Bernice BurgSME Inc.

Nothing competes with anything else--everything has its own look and feel. Fashion drives this industry. If I represent something it must be stylish, chic, tasteful and fashionable." --Marshall StewartSusann Craig Showroom: 10-112 Principal: Susann Craig Lines: All That Glitters, Back East, Jan Michaels (jewelry), Incognito (sunglasses), K.

I can be a lower-price line for an expensive store or be high end for a more moderate store. Contemporary is more of a point of view than a style--it's a way of merchandising. Clothes should be fun, and we have a very relaxed showroom." --Susann CraigKarin Ann BergerShowroom: 13-113 Principals: Karin Berger and Beverly Simon Lines: A'Nue Ligne, Baldanza, Caroline Rose, Due per Due, Elbridge, Harriet Parker, Kielo Dyson, Mitsu/Kinu, Norman Todd, Phyllis Keitler, Regina Porter, State of the Art, Stella Blue, Susan Barry, Morton Myles, Pura"You can't be all things to all women, but we certainly try.
