Interview with Pomtea Yang, owner of P-Fashion!

Describe your business
Sells trendy and stylish formal and informal Asian clothing.
What made you decide to open this business?
I always see the same clothing trend. I wanted to bring a different taste of clothing line to the Hmong community.
What was it like when you first started?
Because the taste and clothing trend was a bit awkward at first, and it was hard for customers to understand, but once it was exposure to the youth in the community, my business blossomed.
What would your customers say they love most about your business?
They love the different style, taste and fashions that I bring.
What’s the most memorable experience you’ve had working with a customer?
Some of the most memorable ones are the customers who do not seem to acknowledge or care of my store, but once they are in there, they are the ones who end up spending a fortune in my store.
Do you have any exciting plans for the future that you want customers to know about?
I want to expand my business with the possibility of entering into all malls like a franchise.
What is something most people don't know about the business?
I'm not sure, but if they don't like it, then they shouldn't just come into the store.
What do you like most about being an entrepreneur?
I like making my own hours, like being independent.
Do you have any advice that you want to share with other entrepreneurs?
First you must like what you are going to do, and second of all, you MUST sell a different item in order to succeed.
What do you love most about the neighborhood?
I love the fact that all us vendors love to watch each others' businesses and each of our kids.
Anything exciting going on that customers should know about?
I just started selling my own athletic wear!
Why do you think it's important for people to shop local?
It's very important because our business is economy driven. shopping locally helps business owners like me keep my american dream alive!
What other things do you want your customers to know about your store?
If you are looking for unique, trim, asian-inspired clothing, this is the place to shop! Booth #276!
