Destin is a perfect hand in glove to the New Orleans location because of its high summer season which typically is the slowest of the year in New Orleans. A beach city will also allow QUEORK to expand its product line to items geared toward travel and the beach such as beach bags and suitcases. A bag line is also being added that gears to girls age 13-25 and the men's line will double in size to meet the needs for all in the family.
The opening of the Destin Commons location is the first of many in an attempt to expand regionally to markets targeted toward tourism and conventions.
"New Orleans has been a great market for us because our product is so unique that it has to be explained and experienced, not just admired, to understand", notes Amanda Dailey, co-owner. "We educate our clients on the benefits of cork in the store and most are visiting the city from locations all over the world. They take this knowledge home with them and become our local marketing team by being fans of the products which in turn drives our brand and online sales."
Destin Commons is one of the most popular shopping destinations in Destin and is located at 4300 Legacy Dr where the Mid-Bay Bridge enters the city. For updates and more information see www.QUEORK.com
