The Merchandising Society, FIT's largest student club, is responsible for operating a successful and growing on-campus boutique, the Style Shop. Offering FIT students, faculty, and alumni the unique opportunity to sell their original creations on a consignment basis, The Style Shop allows its members to gain valuable experience in buying, product development, marketing, finance, customer relations, customer service, management, visual merchandising, and sales.
The members of the Merchandising Society run every aspect of the Style Shop. There are product developers, industry buyers, school merchandise buyers, consumer motivators, marketers, a store operations manager, finance managers, visual merchandisers, and a web designer. All Merchandising Society members are required to work one hour weekly in the Style Shop and are trained in basic customer service skills.
