If you've been following NAB for a while, you know I'm passionate about Bermuda retail and inspiring people to shop and support local businesses. I scour the racks and fill up the dressing rooms with cool finds and post my faves and Must-NABS, all in an effort to show that Bermuda has a great selection, great prices and shopping overseas websites shouldn't be your default mode. Our local stores have amazing products and work hard to curate a unique and incredible selection of items that work in Bermuda, and NAB is here to prove it!
When I first started NAB, I spent a lot of time asking people what would motivate them to shop more locally and the top 3 reasons included convenience, accessibility and price transparency that online shopping would provide. Locals don't want to spend time going from store to store, fighting with parking and wasting time..they want to be able to just go online, add to cart and have their items delivered or ready for them to pick up. If you don't believe me, just check out the Gov't stats showing how much goods are being shipped into Bermuda via courier services or declared through the airport...this Island is losing hundreds of millions to overseas retailers!
Local stores are slowly starting to get it and with the emergence of COVID and the sudden loss of foot traffic to brick & mortar establishments, those with online stores benefitted and I've seen many others get online. I feel like I could keep going on with my thoughts about the future of retail and my predictions on winners and losers, but you came here for the fashion! I have put together 3 looks with items you can #addtocart via local online retailers and have delivered to your door. These are exciting times and I'm proud to be here to support and promote these stores that are doing the most to accommodate our community.
Have a look, check out the stores and let me know which outfit is your fave!!
