At Wristpect Sport one of the things we really like about our work are the people we meet. That made me think why not introduce followers to some of the people we are lucky enough to meet.
Meet Ivy Ackerman. Ten years ago she relocated with her family from New York to Florida. Not surprisingly she loves the lifestyle change with year round sunshine.
Ivy has played tennis throughout her life and loves the sport. Nine years ago her involvement with team tennis lead her to fill a void she saw in the sporting world—a store that carries unique, fashionable sport accessories targeted directly at women and of course one that gives personal service to its shoppers. She named her store Slam Glam.
Slam Glam started in the back of an SUV and today is a thriving online e-commerce store servicing customers nationwide and internationally. Slam Glam prides itself on its personal customer service and finding the latest trends and fashions. (It’s why she carries Wristpect Sport items!) One other thing that sets her apart from other retailers is that she offers personalization on most items.
Running her own business is hard work, but she loves the flexibility and opportunity to be home and close to her two sons. As much as she loves her online boutique, she has plans to have a brick and mortar store once she becomes an empty nester!
Wristpect Sport is thankful for each of its retail partners. Without them we wouldn’t be growing and designing!
