MINNEAPOLIS, April 26, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Christopher & Banks, a women's specialty retailer, today announced plans to celebrate amazing women across the U.S. with "Celebrating You" events in their 516 stores on April 30, 2016. The events, honoring all women as a lead-in to Mother's Day, will feature several in-store activities and mark the launch of the company's next round of the national Amazing Women contest.
"Women are not only Christopher & Banks' foundation and inspiration, they are incredible forces in our lives that we are privileged to honor," said LuAnn Via, Christopher & Banks President and CEO. "Celebrating You is about recognizing the invaluable knowledge and support we provide each other—the life advice we get from our female relatives, the career guidance we gain from our female colleagues and the honest opinions we appreciate from our female friends. We want our customers to bring their circle of women to our stores for a day filled with celebration, laughter and style."
