The story of MODEis not your typical retail narrative. In 2006, seeing a growing need for maternity apparel, both comfortable and fashion forward, Ciara and Jim Stockeland set out to open their first retail store, Mama Mia. With no retail experience, but an attitude of tenacity, Mama Mia was off to a fast start.
By the end of 2006, the Stockelands were approached by a company storing a large quantity of designer overstock product that needed to be liquidated. On February 1, 2007 Jim and Ciara opened a second retail store next door to Mama Mia and called it MODE. This store was intended to be a short term retail setup, but very soon proved to be a booming business. MODE® opened in a bare bones location, utilizing cardboard boxes as dump bins and folding tables for display, it began to draw crowds of people all clamoring for the next “MODE” deal!
