NEW ORLEANS -- (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Two women who grew up 4 miles apart in a small county in Northeast Pennsylvania have teamed up with their businesses to bring new ideas to the city of New Orleans. Up until 6 months ago, Jessica Galetz , owner of Glam 504 on Magazine Street, and Liana “Li” Evans, CTO of Get City Dealz, didn’t even realize how close they really were until a “hometown” connection put them in touch via Facebook.
Evans moved to New Orleans to bring a startup technology business, Get City Dealz, to the city that focused on helping small businesses market themselves via an internet website platform. Galetz moved to New Orleans to start a boutique shop, Glam 504, that focused on unique jewelry and clothing that has New Orleans flair. Once Get City Dealz started looking for merchants to help test out their new marketing platform, a mutual friend from back in their hometown made the introduction, knowing the introduction would be key in helping each of their businesses.
To each of the women’s surprise, they didn’t realize how really close they lived when they were back in Pennsylvania and how many of the same friends they had from back in Schuylkill County, which is known for the discovery of Anthracite Coal and being home to America’s oldest brewery, Yuengling. Now the two have teamed up to help one another’s businesses build in New Orleans.
“We both love this city. New Orleans has such charm that you just can’t help but fall in love with it and its people. It’s what brought me here, I wanted to bring something that could help the businesses of New Orleans and it makes it even greater when one of those New Orleans businesses happens to have a connection to my hometown,” explained Evans about the connection between her and Galetz.
Glam 504 specializes in offering unique fashion and accessories, fusing cutting-edge New York style with the laid-back shopping experience only found in New Orleans. All designers are hand-picked by Jessica, who searches near and far for unique, independent labels that can’t be found anywhere else in New Orleans. Get City Dealz is helping Jessica get the word out to more local residents of New Orleans by allowing her to feature different unique items like their “Citizen NOLA” St. Patrick’s Day shirts.
“Get City Dealz is a great platform that allows me to reach a lot more people in New Orleans and the surrounding metro area. It makes it easy for people to share the specials I put up on the site as well as rate the deals so I know what appeals to people. This site is definitely helping build awareness about Glam504 and the merchandise we carry,” stated Galetz.
