Johannesburg, South Africa, September 22, 2007 --(PR.com
)-- Personal shopping is hardly a new concept in international shopping destinations such as Paris, London and New York. With such a massive international selection available, it’s no wonder time-pressed consumers looked elsewhere for a little help. As the New South Africa picks up a steady yet frantic pace, local shoppers have begun looking for a lifeline too.
“With today's rapid pace, Personal Shopping has become essential to life-management for most people who experience time restraints and retail confusion”, says Karen Loxton, founder of Famous Fox Consulting in Johannesburg. The company provides literal retail therapy for those who are too busy, too impatient or too confused.
“Personal Shoppers were once associated with pure indulgence and luxury, but with today’s hectic lifestyle, many people are finding the service a necessity they can’t manage without”, says Karen. Specialising in the luxury industry, Karen spent four years working as a professional shopper for Onboard Media, a Miami-based LVMH company. “An educated shopper is a confident shopper”, Karen says of her seminars and workshops centered on how to shop for fashion and high-end jewellery, mainly diamonds and tanzanite.
“I am confident the time is right to bring this concept home to South Africa. I believe our consumers are more than ready for new time-saving services. With our ever-growing tourism industry, it’s an absolute must that visitors to South Africa have someone they can trust to take them shopping.”
