The Empowerment Closet is a fantastic resource for students. They had a variety of blouses and tops, and the seamless experience stood out for me. The staff was efficient in meeting my needs quickly. Having a place to rent professional clothing really helped with my confidence before my upcoming interview. The positive atmosphere left me very satisfied.
