Altar’d State Moves to Town with New Store Opening in Biltmore Park
Altar’d State is a unique clothing boutique that differentiates itself through giving back and offers 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. 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.
Customers can feel good about shopping with Altar’d State as most purchases “give back” in some way. Through what is known as Mission Mondays, the company donates 10% of net proceeds to various local charities every Monday. Altar’d State also gives back through an in-house clothing line in which a portion of every purchase goes to feed, clothe, educate and shelter children in need. The company also seeks vendor partners that share their philosophy of giving. For example, TOMS shoes, FashionABLE scarves, Krochet Kids and FEED are available at most locations and each offer something back to those in need.
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 the Asheville location will be one of more than 20 stores in Tennessee, Alabama, Mississippi, Arkansas, Louisiana, North Carolina, Kentucky, Texas, Missouri, Florida, and Virginia. Altar’d State also offers an online retail store found at www.altardstate.com/shop.
