Zippy Chicks owner attends conference

MANCHESTER - Ellen Adams, owner of Zippy Chicks, recently attended the NARTS 27th Annual Conference in Washington, DC. Carefully crafted for resale professionals, the four day conference is the industry's most comprehensive educational event of the year.

Adams attended specialized resale workshops, stimulating networking sessions, motivating general sessions and a resale trade show during this focused program.

Adams joined as a member of NARTS: The Association of Resale Professionals this past year.

"We have an ongoing commitment at Zippy Chicks to continue our resale education and stay at the top of our profession," said Adams. "I left the meeting in Washington, DC with renewed energy, invaluable contacts and a multitude of fresh ideas to help us provide exceptional service and quality merchandising to our customers."

The shop has been a part of Manchester's retail scene since 2010. The store strives to satisfy the varied needs of residents, offering everything from sweaters and dresses to handbags and accessories.
