Do I need an appointment?
*WE DO REQUIRE APPOINTMENTS FOR SHOPPING & PICK-UPS*
After operating by appointment only since March of 2020, Ashley Rene's has decided to implement appointment only shopping as a standard policy of ours. We require appointments when shopping for all occasions in order to provide our customers with the best customer service! By requiring appointments, we are able to better staff so all of our Ashley Rene's girls have a more personal and one-on-one shopping experience. Please call (574) 522-7766 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule your appointment. We will provide you with more details and information at this time.
