This week on Warehouse 242 we are highlighting our DNA Footwear store in Greenpoint. Read on for an interview below and follow us on Instagram for out #DNAtakeover pictures.
How would you describe your everyday customers, do you see more locals or tourist?
Our everyday customers consists of the combination of both! We get a few tourists from Germany, France, and Spain but mainly we have a lot of locals coming in. Greenpoint is an up and coming neighborhood so we see new faces that are moving in everyday! We get a lot of loyal customers that return to us about once a week and we are glad that they chose us to shop with!
How do you guys feel about the store look? What do your customers think?
We love the layout of our store and so do our customers! Like most of our DNA shops, the store has a vintage feel to it especially with the low chandeliers and what sets us apart from the other stores is that we have a Singer sewing table propped right in front of the store and that definitely draws attention
