Sophia Lustig Shop was established in 1936 in downtown Toledo, Ohio by Sophia Lustig, at a time when personal service was the expectation, not the exception. When Miss Lustig passed away in 1972, her longtime employee, the late Grace Sullivan Brandhuber, continued to fulfill Ms Lustig’s business vision. She continued to work at the boutique after she sold the business to Paula Fall in 1981.
In October 1987, Paula moved Sophia Lustig to its current location of 124 Tenth Street. During Paula’s 31 years as proprietor of Sophia Lustig, her impeccable eye for detail coupled with her vision gave Sophia Lustig the reputation of being a symbol of style and grace. In 2003, she saw a need to engage a younger, more contemporary client and launched Sophie’s Sister.
In 2012, Paula sold the business to her protégé, Meredith Sherman. Meredith's education, exceptional industry experience, and commitment to quality retail and relationships has positioned The Sophia Lustig Shops for a strong future.
Although the two shops have their own unique space, the commitment to excellence is consistently strong in both. Each associate is dedicated to fashion, personal service and community involvement. The knowledgeable professional stylists are faithful to their clients and offer a "comprehensive wardrobe experience."
