Patrizia has a set of standards when it comes to the products in her retail store. All of her products have to be made with the finest materials and this is why she travels to Italy twice a year to handpick clothes for the upcoming season. Patrizia feels responsible if she has a dissatisfied customer and believes she must do everything in her power to please them. She wants her clothes to last for a long time and be one of a kind. Patrizia believes this is the ethical way to run any business and is the responsibility she must hold up to her customers. In addition Patrizia explained to me that her strategy for gaining and maintaining new business opportunities is the customers. It’s all about pleasing the customers, everyone that comes through her door she opens them with open arms. She says she has put her heart and soul into the store and so far it has been a hit or miss with Amore Italia’s products. Some customers love what Patrizia has to offer and others do not, she states she need more customers that love her clothes. Patrizia also mentioned that Americans work too hard, when you get home from work you should have the energy to spend time with your children and husband or wife, not just want to crawl in bed.
