Uplift Intimate Apparel, located in Carmel City Center, will celebrate their one year anniversary on May 3, 2018. To make the celebration even more memorable, Carla Mackie, owner and founder, recently received word that she is a Nominee for the 2018 Best Retail Award by Intima Magazine, the global premiere industry magazine.
Since 2004, this unique recognition is given to the best performing lingerie specialty stores in North America by a professional jury composed of both domestic and international famous lingerie brands.
The Best of Intima Awards recognizes the achievements of independent lingerie retailers from the United States and Canada, honoring best practices within the intimate apparel, beachwear and loungewear retail industry. Shops are nominated for a variety of reasons, such as product knowledge, fitting expertise, customer service, and unique sales abilities.
“To be nominated is a tremendous honor for anyone; and, to be included in our first year of business is an exciting and humbling nod to our creativity and commitment to the industry,” says Mackie. Working in the intimate apparel industry for 13 years, Mackie has enjoyed this past year being a business owner. “Uplift Intimate Apparel is the melding of all I’ve learned in the industry. It is the vehicle that allows me to serve women (and men) in a meaningful way,” says Mackie.
This nomination puts Uplift and Carmel, Indiana on the world intimate apparel map. Globally recognized practices and products are available to woman right here in their local area.
The next step comes on June 13, 2018 when Mackie will find out if Uplift Intimate Apparel will be a finalist for the award presented in New York City on July 29, 2018 at the annual Best of Intima Awards Ceremony.
