Sophia Lustig Shop earns recognitionWritten by Duane Ramsey | | firstname.lastname@example.org
The Sophia Lustig Shop in Toledo was recognized as one of the 82 best women’s specialty shops in the U.S. by Bazaar magazine in its September issue. The stores selected are based on the variety and quality of lines carried and level of customer service, according to the magazine.
“We are honored to be one of only two Ohio stores to be in this prestigious Bazaar listing,” Paula Fall, owner of the women’s specialty shop, stated in a press release.
“In addition to longtime relationships with our vendors, we have genuine relationships with our clients and are serving third generations in some cases.”
The Sophia Lustig Shop is located at 124 Tenth Street in Downtown Toledo with its affiliated store, Sophia’s Sister, located behind it in the Davis Building on Michigan Avenue.
The original store was established on Madison Avenue in 1936 by the late Sophia Lustig. Fall purchased the retail business in 1980.
Similar to Ludwig, Fall is active in the arts and community currently serving on the boards of the Toledo Botanical Garden and the Lucas County Library Foundation. She is a recent recipient of the YWCA Milestone Award.
The shop recently hosted the American Heart Association’s Circle of Red, the Valentine Theater Gala Committee, and the store’s Pretty in Pink team ranked fifth in local donations for the recent Komen Race for the Cure, according to the press release.
