Christopher & Banks and its plus-size division, CJ Banks, may be an online retailer that you have overlooked if you are not from the Midwest and familiar with the name.
This Minneapolis-based store has been around for a while, so you don't have to worry about buying from a fly-by-night Internet company. Gil Braun opened the first store in that city in 1956.
Christopher & Banks states, "We offer updated classic styling in quality products at a great value.
"We provide a fresh and colorful mix of clothing and accessories for every season, creating looks that work for your lifestyle."
Fashion After 50 has been featuring products from Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks for a few years now. The prices are mid-range.
Many of the shirts, sweaters, and bottoms will likely appeal to the sporty Artemis fashion archetype, such as camp shirts and seersucker garments in the summer.
The classic dresses and skirts are perfect for Hestia, who often wants comfortable clothes for the home and nearby places, and Sophia, who keeps it simple. The styles are, as Christopher & Banks says for the record, classic.
Skirts, slacks, shorts, sets, and accessories - this womens fashion retailer offers a complete line of products.
If you want to check out their products before purchasing, you can look for a location near you. From that one store in Minneapolis, Christopher & Banks has grown to 686 store locations, plus 62 dual locations for both Christopher & Banks and CJ Banks, and 23 outlet stores.
Christopher & Banks carries misses and petites clothing. CJ Banks features sizes 14W to 24W. The dual locations stock all sizes, as do most of the outlets.
Of course, by taking advantage of online shopping, you have access to the full range of styles, sizes, and colors that are available.
In fact, Christopher & Banks offers some internet specials that are not available in the stores.
Whether you choose a store location or shop online, their mission "is making our customer's shopping experience enjoyable through genuine and honest wardrobe selling."
