How I Can Help You

I retired in 2016 after a 45 year career in the menswear retail business. Our family-owned business was started in 1879 and was operated for the last 30 years by my brother and me. I am very familiar with the menswear business and what it takes to be successful in retail. Marketing, merchandising, personnel management, information systems, store design, financing, customer relations are all areas that a small retailer must become an expert.
