“If you are going to open a brick and mortar business in this day and age, why not do it with a company that’s been in business almost 90 years — rather than just some new, up-and-coming company that might be hot for a quick minute and then might not make it? I do think that the heritage of Merle Norman is something to be valued. They have been producing cosmetics from start to finish, from product development to the time that it goes in the package, for more than 86 years here in the U.S. This is the kind of company that you are partnering with when you decide to take a big risk and a big leap of faith and say, ‘I’m going to open a business,’” Meredith Poland, multi-unit Studio owner in Indianapolis, Indiana.
