THOMASVILLE — A national chain of clothing stores that markets itself as selling brand name clothing at deep discounts will soon be coming to Thomasville.
Label Shopper announced this week that it will open February 25 in the Southgate Plaza mall at 1033 Randolph St.
The store will carry both men’s and women’s clothing, and this particular store will be one of the few in the chain to carry children’s clothing.
In North Carolina, the New York-based company also has locations in Elkin and Mocksville, according to the company’s website.
The chain was founded by Peter Elitzer, who founded Peter Harris Clothes in 1970 in Latham, New York, specializing in market research for low-cost shopping of popular brand name clothing. The company has since expanded to include more than 75 stores in the Northeast and Midwest, according to a company press release.
“We are excited to come to the Thomasville community,” said Elitzer, who continues to serve as the company’s president. “We’re constantly researching the most popular designer brands, negotiating with sellers to get the best possible price, and then extending that to our customers. I think people here are going to really like the value we provide.
