If you haven’t heard of at least one of Ashton Pollack’s businesses, you must still be in quarantine! This entrepreneur is literally everywhere and blazing a trail wherever she goes.
An entrepreneur can be defined as someone who “takes on most of the risk and initiative for their new business and is often seen as a visionary or innovator.” Meet Ashton “Ash” Pollock, a female U.S. Marine Corps veteran and entrepreneur whose vision and innovation have led to a portfolio of projects that clearly requires her Marine training to keep it all going.
Her Ashton Renee Boutique, located in downtown Concord, fully embraces her “conquer the day” vision for style in today’s women’s clothing that truly inspires her customers. Ash says, “Our goal is to give you the most versatile clothing options that will last and can be purchased at affordable prices.”
- Pollock started her boutique because she wanted something different from the young, crop top trends available to women in other stores. Her focus on classic styles and wearable clothing features a mixture of athleisure wear (a hybrid style of athletic clothing typically worn as everyday wear) to business casual and fun “going out” outfits.
Ashton Renee has clothes for all sizes including plus sizes up to 3X, and she also carries fun accessories and gift items.
What makes Pollack truly special in her entrepreneurial journey is her leadership in collaborating with other businesses to create special opportunities for shoppers that drive more traffic into the downtown Concord shopping district.
First Fridays are an effort to provide shopping and dining, all in one place and when it’s convenient for customers, by offering extended hours the First Friday of every month, starting Feb 3rd. Each participating business will announce its specific hours, so be sure to check out all the shops and restaurants that are staying open later, just for you!
- Pollack also manages booths at two marketplaces: Local Focal in Salisbury and Maker and Merchant in the Carolina Mall.
- She also offers personal styling sessions or group shopping sessions as a private personal experience that is free of charge with a $200 purchase, per group.
Oh wait…you didn’t think we were done sharing all that Pollack has going on, did you?
She has also launched Glow Spray Tanning, located at her downtown Concord location. Glow Spray Tanning uses a premium tanning solution that creates a fully customized color to match your skin tone and tan desire.
- It offers exotic anti-aging properties, and certified organic nourishment, meaning it adds many ingredients to improve your overall skin quality. It also has a faster drying time (many spray tans take 10-12 hours, but Glow Spray Tanning only takes 1-4 hours). It also offers a faster-appearing tan and is hypoallergenic, organic, vegan, and PETA-friendly.
Glow Spray Tanning is offering a $15 discount on your first appointment for a limited time. Use code “first” when booking online.
