While I really enjoy reading about entrepreneurs’ personal journeys, I don’t take much interest in their personal lives unless it’s especially relevant to the business’ story. A divorce would typically be completely irrelevant in one of these posts, but today’s it worth talking about. You’ve probably heard of Tory Burch, an extremely successful fashion brand named after its founder (who is now a billionaire). Tory Burch, the person, got divorced from J. Christopher Burch in 2006. After the divorce, Chris Burch decided to start a chain of retail stores called C. Wonder. His ex-wife obviously left a lasting impression, since it’s widely cited that New York, NY based C. Wonder has taken a lot of inspiration from Tory Burch’s designs, while selling the “preppy” goods at a much lower price. There were a few lawsuits and some bad blood, but all seems to be settled now.
Chris Burch was heavily involved in the Tory Burch business, so it’s not like he started C. Wonder out of spite or something. He knows what he’s doing when it comes to fashion and retail, and that’s why C. Wonder “offers an entirely new retail experience: clothing, accessories and home decor products of outstanding quality and astonishing value in a setting that excites and inspires.” C. Wonder’s philosophy is focused on offering a retail experience that “delights” customers. You can get a sense of what they mean by visiting their website, but to really get it, you have to find a store near you. Once you do that, you can check out C. Wonder’s Careers page. They have some great opportunities like:
There are also a ton of retail opportunities, if that’s what you’re looking for.
