What does your business do & what sets you apart from others in your industry?

We are a Women’s clothing store that also sells comfort-driven footwear! Our shoe selection definitely sets us apart from others.

What is “super” about your business?  Why is it special?

JAYNE is special because of the amazing staff we have. We wouldn’t be where we are now if it weren’t for them!

If you could pick a superpower, what would it be?

My super power would definitely have to be to teleport. No more traffic!

What is one thing you have had to do to “pivot” to survive the Covid shutdown?

Closing our doors during the shutdown was most definitely a challenge, but we are thankful for our online store to keep us going. We have created a “Curbside Pickup” option so that customers are able to shop with us, but don’t have to come into the store.

Name one thing you LOVE about our Chamber?

The OPRF Chamber puts businesses first and creates awesome events for us to thrive!

What’s the weirdest thing you sell or offer? Or have there been any odd customer requests?

More fun than weird — but we sell Smith & Sinclair Alcoholic Gummies. Must be 21 to enjoy!
