Sew Unique moving up to Robert Frost

TRAVERSE CITY – Sew Unique Alterations and More is moving up in the world, from the basement of Ella’s Fashion and Furnishings to the first floor in Robert Frost Fine Footwear.

“A lot of new business will come to the store, and a lot of my customers are excited about me moving up to a storefront,” said Chris Ramsay, owner of Sew Unique.

The move comes just as Robert Frost expands its merchandise to include apparel and accessories for men and women, apparel that customers might need to have hemmed or altered.

“Now we’ll become somewhere you can get the good off the shelf, and if it doesn’t fit just right, 24 to 48 hours later that garment is ready to go,” Robert Frost Treasurer Joe Frost said.

Ramsay said she expects the move to benefit her business, which will remain independent, since Frost’s customers may need alterations on their purchases.

It will help the store since her customers will walk past his merchandise.

Frost said housing two businesses under one roof will make the store more appealing to shoppers.

“Goods seem to be so readily available to the customer, whether they’re Internet shopping or otherwise,” Frost said. “I feel it’s important to become more than just a source of goods. Adding a service end to it makes us more of an indispensable storefront to a consumer.”

Sew Unique will open in Robert Frost Fine Footwear by April 24, when Robert Frost hosts a Fashion, Wine & Relaxation fundraiser for My Sister’s House, a nonprofit that helps women ages 18 to 21 learn work and life skills.

The fundraiser will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. at Robert Frost on Front Street.

Tickets are $15 and include spa treatments, wine treatments and a fashion show. Proceeds go to My Sister’s House. Tickets are available at the door, or in advance by calling (231) 534-6750.
