House Call : What Personal Shopper Ben Tobar is doing while in Quarantine

Posted on April 15 2020

We took a look at the work from home challenge and turned it into an opportunity for growth, creativity and a chance to make deeper connections (and that Dalgona coffee that’s gone viral). At A.K. Rikk’s, our team of personal stylists are the dreamers and doers creating individual style for each person who walks through the door. We thought it would be fun to take a peek at how they spend their days. 

    
Today we spotlight Ben Tobar. He has been with the store for over 14 years and loves what he does. Get to know Ben and see what he's been up to while we've all been away. When the store reopens, he will be very happy to see all of you and show you what it’s like to play dress up again!

 

                                                                                             

 

Missy : What do you miss most about the store? 

Ben : Definitely would be interaction with our amazing clients, that social aspect of my job is what makes each and every day different and exciting!

     

 

Missy : Whats the first local business you want to support once social distancing eases up?

Ben : I cannot wait to hit up my friends at the Downtown Market; going to get a lobster roll from Fishlads and enjoy some brunch time at Apertivo trying their newest Champagne! 

 

 

Missy : What memory will you take from this time?

Ben : My favorite thing about sheltering in place has been all the extra time I have been able to spend catching up with family and friends over Facetime and being able to work on house projects with my wife Andrea and dog! 

       

      
 

Missy : What are the clothes that got you through this time?

Ben : I would have to say an old C.P. Company zip up sweatshirt, a most worn in pair of S.M.N. jeans and my first pair of Common Project sneakers I ever bought, beat up to perfection! (oh! Also, I would say oven mitts while cooking, that has been the accessory of the month! Ha!)

Missy : What's the first thing you are going to wear when the social distancing is eased up?
    
Ben : I am surprised at myself for saying this but I cannot wait to wear a suit, and a shirt and tie! It is going to feel so good to get dressed up and feel my absolute best! : ) 
 
                                                                                             
    
Thanks for hanging out with us! You could be doing so many other things. Wait, that’s not true (ouch). Too soon? Catch up with us next time for another personal shopper profile. Stay healthy and safe! Our motto these days is to get through it and grow from it! <3
