Tease Boutique


Project Spotlight

Tease Boutique, 619-795-8044
San Diego, CA

Project Overview: Carmen Strather moved to San Diego enthused to open a new, trendy retail store catering to young women. Unfortunately, realizing her dream took a lot longer than she anticipated because of problems with the general contractor. Tease Boutique’s projected opening date was delayed on several occasions, but just in time for the 2011 holiday season, the downtown store opened its doors.

Note: It’s very important when you engage a contractor to ensure that your expectations are clearly stated in the contract. SMART recommends a value-based review process, and we have contractor referrals that we’re proud to pass along.

SMART Services: Space planning, custom interior and lighting design, contractor bid evaluations, construction document procurement, and construction administration.

The space that TEASE leased had previously been occupied by a gelato shop. You can see the previous space in these before pictures.
