I've always had a real passion for fashion, thus my obsession of resale & thrift stores. As a kid, my mom would drag me from yard sale to yard sale. It's kinda in my blood I guess. It's always been my dream to own a boutique.
On August 8th, 2009 Arnold's Walk-In Closet was established. We opened our second store in Festus in July, 2015. After 5 years in business, we recently sold this location to our amazing store manager, Karlie.
I am blessed to have a successful store, great employees, and have met so many great customers over the years. We will be celebrated 12 years in business in August!
Jessica Arnold, Owner
I've known I wanted to work in the fashion industry since High School, where I took a sewing class and fell in love with creating my own looks. I went off to Mizzou and finished with a Bachelors of Science in Textile & Apparel Management.
After college I moved to Los Angeles where I managed a few fashion boutiques, and there I realized it wasn't designing the item from scratch that I loved so much, it was putting the look together for the customer and seeing the smile on their face when they left.
Since then I have worked for companies like Michael Kors, Nordstrom, Macy's and Dillard's. I have managed Departments, Sales and Operations, and been a Personal Stylist. I stumbled across Arnold's Walk In Closet 2 years ago, and was fascinated by the resale game. It is so refreshing to see clothing from ALL designers, at really affordable prices. I truly believe that great customer service impacts sales and keeps them coming back, and i love what i do!
