“Store Spotlight” is a mini project we work on here in Roni Rabl where we showcase our stores and their owners, with the goal in mind to learn and share about how to make a fashion store successful. Our first featured store is CladIn, with locations in Rhode Island and Connecticut. Q. What’s your favorite ice cream flavor? A. Vanilla Q. What’s your birth date? A. July 18 Q.
