Meet Meg and Anna.
The woman behind the name Simply Meg's is known to friends and family as Meg Wilkins Strader. Following a dream that she had nurtured for quite some time, she opened the doors to her own upscale contemporary boutique at The New Shops at Friendly, Greensboro, NC, in November of 2007. She added sophistication to the shabby chic decor along with warm and unassuming customer service. This combination, along with the work ethic instilled by her parents, turned heads in the Greensboro area and attracted customers from surrounding areas, as well.
Experiencing immediate success and taking on her own name brand for the store at the end of 2008, one can look at her preparation to see that it was certainly no accident. She had done her homework and, in many ways, had been preparing for this venture for many years. Meg's love for fashion had been nurtured through the years, as her mother and grandmother always had high regard for beautiful clothing, and provided her with exposure and appreciation for unique and beautiful pieces. Majoring in fashion merchandising at Meredith College, she studied and worked in many settings, including Raleigh, Paris and Atlanta. Upon graduation, she took a job as a wholesale representative for Simpatico Showroom based in Atlanta, and traveled to markets in Los Angeles, Las Vegas, and New York, as well as hundreds of boutiques in the southeastern United States.
Most business ventures are not without support, and Simply Meg's is certainly no exception!!!! From the very beginning, the long hours and endless responsibilities have been lovingly supported by Meg's husband, mother and younger sister. Anna Wilkins Cross officially joined her sister in December, 2009 as an associate in buying, merchandising and sales upon her own completion of a degree in Fashion Merchandising and Design from Meredith College in Raleigh. Seven years younger than Meg, she brings an added dimension to the store based on her own studies and work in Paris and New York City, as well as her contributions to the early stages of Simply Meg's. Together with their current staff (and their mother who operates in the background) they make a uniquely capable team!
Simply Meg's strives for a unique shopping experience for its customers, based on expertise, experience and a sense of style that is always up to date and fashionable. Bringing the "best of the best" from the designers they represent in a setting that stimulates your senses and offers you unparalleled personal service and attention, Simply Meg's offers beautiful choices for savvy and fashionable ladies of all ages.
