Did you know that personal shopping is not a new career path? The Oregonian’s Laura Gunderson reports on Cleo Cummings and her years at Macy’s as a personal shopper. Cummings pioneered the art of personal shopping at Meier & Frank which eventually became Macy’s, for 73 years. Cleo also availed herself to clients for closet inspection based on her own high dressing standards for extra income.
