According to numerous sources including the Small Business Administration (SBA), roughly 80% of small businesses survive their first year. However, after the first year, the numbers decline swiftly. Only about 50% of small businesses survive past the five-year mark. And roughly 30% will survive to 10-years. We are so proud to be in the surviving (and thriving) group!
Chances are good you’ve heard our story before (64-year-old woman relocates to Indiana to be closer to family and open an intimate apparel store armed with an idea, drive, and passion to serve women). At Uplift, we have the privilege of serving women – all shapes, sizes, and types of women. And in doing this for the past five years, we have truly defined and are living our passion.
Uplift is on a mission, dressed as a business. We help women find and tap into their confidence, to really see their true beauty – inside and out, and to help them accept themselves just as they are. In a nutshell, we want all our guests to see themselves through our eyes. Look at many of our reviews and you’ll get a glimpse into the heart of Uplift.
Our tools are intimate apparel and your experience is like none other, anywhere. It’s important that we give you the very best of ourselves. Lives are changed here and we hold that as sacred. We truly believe lingerie is for you. It’s a very personal, private decision we each make for ourselves, not for anyone else. If your attire is dictated by your job or you wear a uniform, your lingerie isn’t. You choose who you are underneath your clothing. That’s why we always say Uplift Intimate Apparel is where dressing begins.
When we say Happy Birthday to us, to Uplift Intimate Apparel, what we’re really saying is a heart-felt Thank YOU to all of you who enable us to serve you. Now, go tell all your friends!
