(Altar'd State issued the following press release on May 31.)
Altar’d State, the next big thing in retail, announced today it will open a store in early this fall.
Altar’d State is an energetic retail concept offering a distinctive shopping experience for women interested in the latest fashion finds, the most anticipated accessories and that next great gift. Whether she is 16 or 60, the common thread is her desire to share her personality through stylish, comfortable, on-trend clothes, shoes and accessories.
Aside from providing all the latest trends, Altar’d State distinguishes itself by supporting charitable causes in the community. Through what is known as Mission Mondays, the company donates 10% of net proceeds to various local charities every Monday.
Altar’d State also supports its communities by funding monthly employee volunteer hours and seeking vendor partners that share the company’s philosophy of giving back. For example, TOMS shoes, FashionABLE scarves, Krochet Kids and FEED are available at most locations and each offer something back to those in need. Altar’d State customers can enjoy personalized attention in an upbeat environment that promotes confidence, civic involvement and positivity through its merchandise. Altar’d State is more than a store, it’s a movement.
Doing what’s right comes naturally to this division of Walters & Mason Retail Inc. Aaron Walters, chairman and CEO, and Brian Mason, president and COO, developed the store concept in April 2009 to fill a gap in the retail industry. The Altar’d State family was built on a passion for fashion, customer care, community support and Christian values.
The company’s home office is located in Knoxville, Tennessee and currently operates 11 stores in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana and Virginia. Further growth is planned with 8 to 10 stores slated to open by November 2012.
