It looks like the bad economy has claimed yet another casualty. According to industry insiders, TAGS Boutique, owned by Real Housewives of Atlanta cast member Kandi Burruss and her business partner Hortense Chin, will be closing its doors for good soon.

Friends say sales of affordable clothing and accessories at TAGS aren't brisk enough to keep the doors open. This, despite the fact that Kandi Burrus, who is listed as the CEO on the business license, is supposedly the most popular cast member on Real Housewives of Atlanta.

It seems Kandi's popularity isn't translating to sales at the cash register in her shop or in the record stores. It probably wouldn't matter even if her fans wanted to support her. Customers complain that TAGS is rarely open during business hours and phone calls to the boutique routinely go unanswered.

Is this any way to run a business?

One frustrated customer even took to her Twitter account to inquire what was going on:

TAGS, which opened late last year, is located at 4500 West Village Place in Smyrna, Georgia. When I spoke by phone to Kandi Burrus a week before the Grand Opening, she didn't know the phone number or the address to the shop so I could post the info for my readers.

What business woman doesn't know the phone number and address to her own business? Mind you, TAGS was already open for business a month before the Grand Opening.

In fact, Kandi had to call her business partner to get the phone number and address to the store because the info wasn't stored in her cell phone. Right then I had my suspicions that the business wouldn't do well.

I also hear through the grapevine that Kandi's business partner isn't too thrilled with Kandi who spends more time on the social networking site Twitter.com promoting her Internet video stream talk show than she does promoting the shop.

    Wow, I thought a poster on here had shopped there before? Maybe she was just the spokesperson and not really invested in the business.....

  • Daisy

    Morning

    I went to the shop to get the scarf she on in these pics but they were sold out! I was :mad: I LUV me a fly scarf

    Was looking forward to picking up some pieces for Spring.

    Betta luck next time Kandi

    awww thats unfortunate.

    Good morning all! I guess Kandi doesn't have the business mind we thought she had.

    Haha! Let me google what that stock is going for these days. She does stay on Twitter a lot.

  • LaTechGrad02

    Well maybe she'll send a tweet about the Going out of Business sale to her followers? :shrug:

    Sandra I planned on going to her job next mth after I got my bonus from work to pick up some pieces for Spring. There is another lil boutique in that plaza guess I will have to go there instead.

    Hey Shunda *waves* Did you find a new gig?

  • http://twitter.com/Danielle_1984 Danielle84

    Well that is horrible. Hopefully they can turn this around and remain open. I hate to see a black owned business shut its doors so soon.

    its doesnt matter to me her shop is not in dallas!

  • Ms.kaylamomma

    Poor Kandi, first she loses her finace' and now she loses her business. Is Twitter that addictive that you can't stay off of it to take care of your business? Do they have a Twitter Anonymous like they have AA?

    Kandi: *stands up*, "Hi, I'm Kandi and I'm addicted to Twitter"

    TA: "Hi Kandi!"

    Damn shame...

    Good morning all.

    finace' = fiance', sorry for the typo

    Yo Kandi stick to producing.

    How are you gonna have a store without store hours? Blank stare.

  • http://charactercorner.blogspot.com attorneymom

    I had to unfollow Kandi on twitter because she kept tweeting Rasheeda and Diamond as if they didn't live in the same state and had each other's cell phone numbers. WTH? Blank stare.

    Tia Mowry (from The Game and Sister Sister fame) does stupid stuff like that. Do celebs really think that people want to read tweets to other celebs all the time? Another blank stare. Wouldn't it make more sense to tweet your "fan" - the shareholders of your career?

    The celebs need to take a lesson on how to appropriately use twitter from Sandra's friend, Monica.

  • gypsyeyes

    Good morning all!!

  • free

    celebrity restaurants and boutiques are overrated.

  • pointhimout

    you have to market a product or service in demand. i'm supportive of any business venture, but if i were an avid investor, you couldn't come to me with a clothing store and get my money. sometimes having a famous spokesperson can work more against your store than working for the store.

    in any event, i dont think it was a good idea to have a clothing store. take this stuff online, and there goes the overhead of monthly rent and utilities. because she spends so much time on line, it would have a better chance of her sending out emails and coming up with a great e-marketing campaign for her store.

    simply being kandi burruss with a clothing store isn't marketing enough. combat that with monthly expenses and you're already in the red before a single profit can be accounted. she should lose the store front and go online. if daisy went for a scarf and it wasn't there, someone should have taken her info, given her a raincheck and re-stocked this product. daisy loves scarves; she would be the one person you email whenever you get new scarves in and on your shelf. she gets first dibs on ya products.

    again, anybody can open a business. the successful ones are those that remain open through good and bad times.

  • pointhimout

    #21, AM, that's funny because I unfollowed Kandi too. Yes Daisy, I unfollowed her on twitter. it irks me too that celebs be on twitter all day talking to their celeb friends, like you say--as if they dont have each others number and whatnot.

    a celeb on twitter should be talking TO THEIR FANS, not their friends. but as time has proven, the celebs are on twitter merely for popularity and racking up followers, all while ignoring the same no-name followers at the same time. it's more interesting to see what the publicists like nicole garner are up to. you expect her to talk about parties and events. i dont want to hear this from a phaedra parks or kandi, or their back and forth banter on how they're bosses and doing it. so i stop following them.

  • LilMissRed

    closing ALREADY? well dayum! To be honest I hadnt heard anything else about this place so I totally forgot... now I know why.. its never open... well that just sucks LOL

But like Pep said, his facebook page was pretty clean so... But she won't be going on anymore dates with Joel, she says, they will be just friends.

    my business partner Peaches (who i have a great relationship with) was upset bout it. she's not use to stuff like that. She's very low key.

    anyway, contrary to what was reported TAGS Boutique is doing great! we even started online shopping this month http://www.TAGSAtl.com is our site

    I hope her character isn't what she usually plays, the tries to be proper but country always creeps out in someway with a bit too much sass, but not enough to be ghetto. I've only see her play these sort of roles, I wonder if she can actually act.

    After reading a few tweets from Kandi, I am beginning to look at her sideways. She started tweeting I believe from the urging of Kim on RHOA but she is really doing too much on there. If she promoted her shop like she does her "personal achievements", I am sure the shop would be performing better. Oh well. Another one bites the dust.

  • WalkingKontradiction

    @Daisy, I've wondered about that as well (shade thrown @ ATL) I wanted to move there a while back and people went crazy, they say all the men down there are gay, which I really don't want to believe, because how can that be possible???? I want to visit and see for myself.

  • Daisy

    @Walking the A does have plenty of gay men but there are some straight men they are either married or playas for the most part. I am sure there are some good/great/decent straight men in this city though I just havent met one yet :lol:

    Not everybody in the A is a wannabe or impressed with real or wannabe celebs. Not every female is a wanna be model/video chick etc. Plenty of NORMAL/REGULAR men and women live in the A. Wannabes/catty men/women etc. reside in every city last time I checked.

And keep some regular business hours or hire someone who can work in the store for your ass while you on Twitter all day.

    @WalkingKontradiction... it's true about the men. They're too many men who are either, interested in men, involved in criminal behavior, incorrigible womanizers, involved in too much drama or all of the above. When you find one of those men who are actually worth your time and effort, you see women going above and beyond to woo him too.

    Atlanta is not a good city for black love, I'm comparing it to the other cities I've lived in (Boston & Washington, DC) and spent time socializing in. I don't even recommend newly married couples living here, they're some straight up MAN EATING PIRANHAS running around in Herve Leger bandage dresses pretending to be professionals but they're professional at sleeping with other people's men.

    @Daisy & Choco...

    I never played that! Straight men in Atlanta, doing something with their lives seem to think they're some type of commodity, as if women who live in Atlanta are forced to stay within city limits in their search for love. The way I see it, I'm THE asset, if you don't check for me, somebody worthy of all that I am, will. And he did.
    Not to cause division, but that's why I stuck to my African men no matter where I lived; they have no problem (and frankly seem to enjoy) chasing you and courting you the way it's supposed to. Most African men I know get turned off by overly aggressive women, but they'll still take whatever she's offering for free. But that could be me being totally biased. :D

Who wants to do that. I'm not taking care of no grown man lol!!!

    @ Daisy

    I used to have that same attitude...let the guy approach me. I felt that women who approached men were desperate. Then I had to get realistic and understand that perhaps the man really wants to talk to you but is simply too shy to approach someone they are interested in. The guy I am courting now is the guy that I swallowed my pride and approached. He was too good of a catch for me to play the "come hither unto me" bull-ish game. There are a lot of women out there waiting for the man to approach them because of some ol' skool hang ups. There are also a lot of women who have taken a vow of celibacy hoping that this will attract a man to them and make the man want them so bad that he will marry them in order to hit that panties. Did I mention that a lot of these women are single and blaming it on the man and White women??? :rofl:

  • ReadTheBlog

    Daisy, you won't ask a guy out? It's unconventional, but if you're really feeling him, you won't?

  • ReadTheBlog

    Jewelry, guys are slow and don't always pick up on vibes.

    I was like that too, but I decided I wanted to date and have fun and if I found the right one, YAHHHHH! It was never an issue of 'having to pay', or sleeping around. And my ideal guys (marriage material) were not beating down my doors :-( I had to go get em!

    Thankfully, I met my husband in the dating process (he asked me out). If I were still so closed minded, I'd be a 34 y/o single, barren, fat, cat lady!

  • Daisy

    No I won't ask a man out. I don't blame my being single on anything or anybody. When God is ready for me to be in a relationship I will be.

  • Jewelry

    ReadTheBlog:

    It is important for women to understand that you can and should approach a man if you are feeling him. Let him know of your interest and then step back and let him do the pursuing. But at least you put it out there. That is what I did...open the door and allowed him to walk through it. It really is not rocket science...a lot of women, Black women in particular, need to get over themselves. There is a lot, I mean a lot, of competition out there and the old-fashioned ways work some of the time in a few cases.

  • WalkingKontradiction

    :rofl: Yes the gay scene is everywhere but it just seems like it's RAMPANT in the "A" from what people say but like I said I would have to see it to believe it!

    @KaraZ: That's interesting that you say that about the African men because the man I'm talking to is African, but he's used to the LA-Hollywood scene and I think that's enough to shake any man up from reality, there are lots of pretty girls with nothing upstairs and nothing to lose and they basically throw themselves at him, but then I guess that's why he found me attractive cause when we first met I was like nucca bye, ain't nobody checking for you! LOL, I think alot of women are afraid to let a man know that he is not the prize but SHE is, too many dudes feeling themselves these days, there can't be a DIVA AND DIVO in the relationship :nono:

    @KaraZ: That’s interesting that you say that about the African men because the man I’m talking to is African, but he’s used to the LA-Hollywood scene and I think that’s enough to shake any man up from reality, there are lots of pretty girls with nothing upstairs and nothing to lose and they basically throw themselves at him, but then I guess that’s why he found me attractive cause when we first met I was like nucca bye, ain’t nobody checking for you! LOL, I think alot of women are afraid to let a man know that he is not the prize but SHE is, too many dudes feeling themselves these days, there can’t be a DIVA AND DIVO in the relationship

    Not that I am the new advocate for Black American Women/African Men love or anything but I just wonder why people are so closed minded to it. People always say there are no good black men but by saying (and I hear this A LOT) I don’t date Africans; you are cutting off a whole demographic of men. Ok they come from a different culture than you but instead of thinking they are all poor, running around naked in a jungle and killing wild animals to eat, get to know one. I have only dated 2 (one I married), but my sister’s is a pro at it (all she has dated since college) and her husband is from West Africa as well and they are both good men. Yeah they have their ways and on some days you might want to F them up but that’s with all men.

    Nika, I did that. Right before I met my husband. I was celibate, and got to know myself for that time (not like that - haha). I did a lot of reading and a lot of praying. I set goals for myself (that did not include a man) and achieved them! It really helps you to realize what type of person you are, what you have to offer, and what you expect.

    Good luck in your journey :-)

    @ Daisy & Nika :cosign:

    Sorry but ask alot of men and an "aggressive" woman is a turn off to them. What works for you works for you, if you approached your man and yall are now living happily ever after then congrats but to those of us who don't find it necessary to approach men that is our choice and that doesn't make us lonely single church ladies, although I see nothing wrong w/ that either cause you'll never be lonely with God on your side :shrugs: Again @ Daisy I commend you for having standards/requirements and sticking to them because you are right, when God sees fit you will be rewarded, heck I'm sure you don't have problems pulling on a daily basis, but just because you are capable of catching the fish doesn't mean it's worth keeping.

    I thought he was a black man when I met him, didn't know he was African until after the fact but I said nucca bye aint nobody checking for you because of the way he approached me, like I should JUMP at the chance to holla, and I'm like no buddy you don't know who I AM! :lol: He said that's what got him about me, I bring him back down to earth because all these "wooers" fill your head with nonsense and you tend to lose sight of reality and what's important. So with us it's like that, that's our dynamic and actually I was one of those who said I wouldn't date an African because of all the horror stories I heard but again that is just a generalization, everyone can't always be the same. The culture is different, I'm still learning because I'm very head strong(not militant but I've done everything on my own for so long that it takes a little time to compromise and let someone else do what they are supposed to do) I'm working on it.

HOWEVER, I am NOT down for the multiple wives thing, and he laughed when I said it like dang, so women really think like that about us? I'm like YES and alot of times it's true, but again as I'm learning we have stereotypes for EVERYONE and they have stereotypes for us as blacks and black women. If I thought about it every BLACK man I've ever dated I've had a bad experience with and they thought they were God's gift and they learned the hard way from me they were sadly mistaken, doesn't mean I wouldn't ever date a black man again, oh who am I kidding I did say that! :rofl: Nevamind, carry on!

    @ WalkingKontradiction

    I think that’s what my husband likes about me too. He always says I go hard but I TRY to make sure I still let him play his position. It takes work to balance it and especially cuz it’s not what I’m use too but it gets easier with practice.

    @ Daisy, I don’t think it gets no better than my husband, I always say he is the best thing out of West Africa. I think he is absolutely beautiful (in a man way). And as far as the wives thing, well his father has 2 wives but it’s a choice it’s NOT a mandatory thing. My husband says on some days he don’t even want one wife <<<<Whatever. Anyway we talked about it we started dating and I made it clear that I’m not interested in being part of a polygamous relationship and he said he wasn’t interested in it either so we proceeded.

    In regards to African men, I think it's 50/50. I've met some cool ones were nice and outgoing. But I've also met some who thought they were better than me & other Black Americans.

    Just because you have an online store DOES NOT mean you will be successful. The problem with majority of Urban business owners is that they don't invest sh!t in the online properties that have to be treated like a separate business venture and it is NOT cheap! Majority of people and businesses I run into don't want to pay a dime into their website, they are looking for folks that do it for free or just cheap. Then they wonder why nothing comes from it.

    There is a reason why Zappos, Walmart, Target, etc. make a lot of money online because they invest in technology and their online presence. YOu have to have someone monitor site activities every single day, update inventory, have a distribution system from site to order processing, order updates and so on. It is has to be planned out and tweaked.

    Looking at the site it looks just like that maybe paid $1500 for it, there no categories, no navigation to products, bad product description if any, no meta tagging. The site is just bad for online business and I am not saying that to be saying it. YOu have to invest in an online shopping site. Companies like Amazon, spend millions every single year for site operations. They have 100s of developers that make great money.

    You can say that they have the money but they started small first wiht small staff and eventually grew. However you have to make it an investment otherwise there is no point!

    Very good observations, Dblaq. That's because she threw that site up quickly this morning. It wasn't even working until a couple of hours ago. Kandi doesn't think about anyone but herself. she promoted her bootleg video talk show but made not one tweet about that store until today. The only reason I don't fully expose Kandi is because someone who I respect asked me not to.

  • Al-Ameera

    Well when I say African I am talking about West Africa (maybe because it’s all I know) but to say all Africans are this and that is like when they say that all American black men are drug dealers and all American black women are video girls. They are just silly generalizations that can be easily done away with by communicating. Simple

    But for the record when my husband and I got married I moved in with him, his brother and two cousins until his lease was up and then we got our own place. I tell you it was the longest 5 months ever living with 4 men, coming home smelling goat cooking almost every day, ugh. But they did EVERYTHING for me. They cleaned, they cooked (not that I ate it), they ironed my clothes; they took my clothes to the cleaners, bought me stuff, etc. If my husband wasn’t home one of the others would run errands for me. So I have nothing bad to say about them.

    Now I know some bad ones too....

    #Noshade but these generalizations about African men are even worse than the generalizations made about men in ATL. How many African men have you met in your entire life? It wouldnt matter if you added every African man you and every chick you know met, it still wouldnt represent a percentage worth mentioning.....

    @QuettaV You never met an American black guy with ashy feet?lol, I know I have.

    Every African I know is either a Dr or a Pharmacist. Either way they all have Dr in front of their names and are married to African American women.

  • Krysi J

    Never tried a African man and never will. I take that back maybe if he was a fine looking one. The ones I see here are ashy feet sandal wearing cab drivers

    @KrysiJ, no the other part about how she approached him is why I said my friend is a man eater, she actually self-proclaims that.

  • BROWNSUGAPOET

    Thank you krysi!
    Vibaby my opinions are based off of my experiences with them personally. The last one I met was doing his residency at one of the hospitals here and said he didn't like tellin women cause they always wanat his money! I told him "I'm single with no kids and a govt employee so I don't need your money!" and gave his number back to him and he stalked my azz for months when he would see me at a club!

    Girl I was so over them and all the nice-ness, they were loud, were always playing/watching soccer. I needed my own space. Love them to def but it was time to go, but for 5 months I didn’t pay one bill or buy anything and that was a nice change!

    And yes a lot of them do drive cabs, however, my husband is an accountant but he says he may try being a translator since he speaks 8 languages.

    YAYYYYYYY! Felix was able to fix my hard drive! :dance: He installed a new hard drive, put windows XP on it and used the new drive to look into the old drive and run chkdsk on the fried drive because the fried wouldn't boot at all yesterday. So Chkdsk repaired all the corrupt files on the fried drive and then Felix told me to use it as a slave drive. But me being stubborn, I told him I want to see if the fried drive will boot up now and he laughed. Well, it booted right up! LOL. :-D

    Very good observations, Dblaq. That’s because she threw that site up quickly this morning. It wasn’t even working until a couple of hours ago. Kandi doesn’t think about anyone but herself. she promoted her bootleg video talk show but made not one tweet about that store until today. The only reason I don’t fully expose Kandi is because someone who I respect asked me not to.

I will whisper back " do I have to love those feet too"

    Yep!
    It's funny cuz my husband or the fashion wh*re (as my sister calls him) is all about dressing in name brands, generally only wears expensive shoes and always smells good. But what about the lotion? People always comment on how nice he looks but there are some days he will throw on some jeans, a polo shirt with the collar up and some flip flops with no lotion and then it all comes back who I am dealing with. I think where is this African going like that? LOL but I'm still keeping him!

    @VI I dont eat chittlins, deer meat or goat and I am from the South. Goat may be good never tried it now I only eat chicken/fish so I am good yall enjoy though.

    Obviously if the store had any reason to be open, meaning if they were making any real money, it would have been. If it comes down to buying food and paying bills or shopping for high end apparel,well, Tags is a result of what happens.

    Drive past a Goodwill Store sometimes. You'll see almost

    as many cars on their parking lot as you see at the Mall.
