As a buyer for Macy’s, I was fortunate to travel and fully immerse myself in the world of fashion. When I left that position to raise my girls, I realized I could still pursue my career in a different way.

My basement housed what would now be called a “pop up”. My goal was to offer exciting new styles and personalized service for each customer. This concept took off and enabled me to open my first store in Warren in 1996. The store was small but after 5 years, it tripled in size. After initial success, I expanded and added accessories, girls and junior clothing to the line. One final move landed us in a bigger, more centrally located space. I take pride in being an integral part of the community and enjoy participating in many local charity events.

Keeping with my mission to be consistently fresh and exciting, I decided to take the store on-line. Our e-commerce platform will feature up-to-date, style worthy fashion at affordable prices. For now, many items will be web exclusive and will be a great addition to what is featured in the store.

From day one, while creating and evolving Hillary’s, my passion has stayed the same: a well-dressed, satisfied customer!
