The Briosa Boutique staff have their collective fingers crossed that this week's episode of House Hunters International on HGTV will feature a few select shots of downtown Frankfort...and (hopefully) the store. The reality show was in town last fall to shoot background footage for the March 13 segment. House Hunters International follows the exciting and exhausting process of people searching for the perfect fit dream home in far away locale.
Whether downtown Frankfort and a few of its merchants made it to the final edited version will be revealed, along with the house hunter, when the episode airs at 9:30 p.m. this Wednesday. While Briosa would be thrilled to be mentioned as a hometown favorite, the truth is, co-owners Gloria, Rae and Debbie work hard to be the perfect fit for their customers. And it shows.
Once local devotee Lauren DeWitt left this note on Briosa’s Facebook wall: “I need clothes from Briosa soon. I’m dying in WV (West Virginia)!”
"That means so much to us when customers who have moved away still keep in touch to tell us how much they miss us," shared Gloria.
Current Frankfort resident Marni Vaundry had this to say about her favorite boutique: "Briosa has the latest trends in clothing and accessories with a variety of styles with affordable prices. I love their customer service, as they never pressure you to buy, and give their honest opinions of how you look when you try on their clothes."
Other Facebook fans have left comments on their page calling them Christmas elves (because they offer personalized shopping suggestions to the men who come looking for gifts) and letting them know that they are the "go to" store for birthday gifts for friends and family.
Adds Vaundry: “The staff is very helpful, warm and friendly and really know how to put clothes together to make the perfect combinations which look fantastic…plus you can wear them casual during the day or dress them up for evening. Whether buying something for myself or a present for others…Briosa Boutique is a perfect fit.”
Let's see if an international house hunter thought so, too. Tune in to HGTV Wednesday at 9:30 p.m. when all will be revealed!
