CIRCLES is truly is a Touch of Manhattan in Albany!
A women's specialty store, that opened in 1994, CIRCLES' mission is to offer sophisticated current fashions in comfortable surroundings while providing optimum customer service.
The owner worked for the NYS Governor's Office and Legislature and was in government for 20 years before managing financial programs at the NYS Energy Office. Seeing a need for a sophisticated specialty store in the tri-city area, she decided to open CIRCLES providing a shopping option to the fashion savvy customer. The store has grown from a small storefront offering sportswear to what is now comprised of three storefronts at Stuyvesant Plaza. The departments include sportswear, day and evening dresses, footwear, handbags, jewelry, cosmetics and skincare.
CIRCLES offers some of the most sought after designers which include Vince, Theory, Diane VonFurstenberg, Nanette Lepore, Milly, Nic & Zoe, Nicole Miller and Carmen Marc Valvo (See our designer line).
Our sales associates are available to act as your personal shoppers ensuring you find what you need and what looks best on you. They can accessorize your outfit with jewelry and legwear. When you do find that perfect pair of jeans, prom dress or mother-of-the bride dress, CIRCLES "master" seamstress, will make sure your selection looks as though it was custom made just for you! Our seamstress was trained in NYC and worked for some of the top bridal houses.
What makes CIRCLES cosmetic department so exclusive is that our staff is trained in and sells all of the cosmetic lines we carry. Our estheticians and cosmetic artists have been extensively educated by some of the top New York City artists. Rather than be restricted to one line, they are able to put together a skincare/beauty prescription regimen that will work best for you. Oftentimes, this means pulling from several of our lines to meet your specific needs.
The staff is the key to CIRCLES success. All of our associates have many years of experience and training from working alongside some of the most experienced people in beauty and fashion industry. Services we offer include private fashion consultations, personal shopping, alterations, prom and bridal makeovers, skincare consultations and so much more.
