At a time when many independent businesses are feeling the pinch, Fairen Del is expanding its offerings by bringing back The Madison Suite at Flower Hill Promenade. Owner Irina Rachow notes, “We have shifted our luggage, business, and men’s departments into their own new store and have reintroduced our original name.” The Madison Suite is the perfect place for gearing up for work and play, with a luggage department complete with every bag, backpack, and travel essential imaginable. The business section offers briefcases, iPad cases, pens, and portfolios. “You’ll find recognized brands such as Tumi, Briggs & Riley, Hugo Bosca, Mulholland Brothers, and Marc New York.” Gift-wrap and shipping services are available, along with a corporate gift program. “And if we don’t have it,” Rachow adds, “we’ll try to find it for you. With 20 years in the industry, we were never really gone, but it’s also good to be back.”  (858/259-7622)     MASON RICHEY
