National multi-brand fashion organization prioritizes family with all-day closure
KNOXVILLE, Tenn., Sept. 14, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Stand Out For Good, Inc., the parent company of women’s fashion brand Altar’d State, announces it will be closed all day on December 24 this year. As a national retailer with a strong presence in fashion centers, this decision defies industry standards. Christmas Eve brings a surge of last-minute shoppers to stores, making it one of Stand Out For Good’s busiest days. However, for Co-Founder, Chairman and CEO Aaron Walters, the importance of associates spending quality time with family outweighs financial gain.
“It’s been a longtime goal of mine to close the stores on Christmas Eve,” said Walters. “Our team works so hard to make the Christmas season happen, and they deserve to rest and relax at home with their families.”
Altar’d State has gained a reputation for its philanthropic efforts and community engagement as a giveback-focused company. Closing its stores on Christmas Eve further exemplifies the brand’s dedication to making a positive impact, not only through its giveback partners and customer experience but by prioritizing family and the true reason for Christmas.
“For a seasonal associate, working Christmas Eve is expected,” said Vicky O’Neill, vice president of people development. “We are hoping to differentiate ourselves to prospective seasonal hires and create a new standard for retailers that puts associates and family first.”
Alongside Altar’d State, Stand Out For Good, Inc. encompasses AS Revival, Arula, Tullabee, and Vow’d Weddings. Stores will remain closed through the Christmas holiday, reopening on December 26.
As the Christmas season approaches, Altar’d State invites everyone to join in the spirit of giving, gratitude, and quality time with loved ones. The brand are still hiring for the Christmas season. See available job openings here.
