Q: Any highlights on your recent announcement?
- A: Duffield Lane prides themselves on offering local customers “Local Pricing,” a 15% discount on CEO, Jamie Duffield’s high-quality, designer clothing line. Duffield’s clothing line is sold locally at Duffield Lane’s Flagship Boutique within the Breton Village Mall at 2457 Burton St SE, Grand Rapids, MI 49546. The Local Pricing is provided to all shoppers at the Breton Village store- making it an attraction and worth visiting in-store! As more and more shoppers move to online shopping- Duffield Lane values the experience of local boutique shopping by offering a 15% discount off online prices, encouraging local shoppers to come visit.
- “Our community means the world to us, so we are excited to find a way to give back. Offering Local Pricing is the least we can do for all the support we’ve experienced over the years,” explains Duffield. “Shop local and keep it local- it’s just a small way we can work together to keep our community thriving.”
- Duffield, Founder and CEO, is a local East Grand Rapids resident. She developed her clothing line while working as a lawyer in Miami- struggling to find comfortable but classic pajamas that could be worn to run a quick errand, or even in front of her in-laws. Duffield Lane was born as a pajama company, but now has grown into a complete line of ready-to-wear comfortable clothing for women and girls of all ages offered wholesale, retail store and online. Duffield Lane is run by Jamie and her husband Ryan Duffield, along with a team of 13 local employees.
