DEMOPOLIS-‘Another Jump’ for AJ’s Clothing Store has landed them into the building that was vacated by the Gold Mine, right next door to their old store in the Robinwood Center in Demopolis.
“This building is about double the size of the other building next door, but once they moved out, we had to move here,” Rick Arrington, AJ’s owner said, “Plus, this building gives us more room for newer merchandise for our customers.”
Arrington said this is the third move for the business in there many years here in Demopolis. The franchise first opened downtown, but then moved to the Robinwood center in 1997 and now to the building next door.
“We wanted to stay where we were in the same location because we didn’t want to lose any of our loyal customers,” Arrington said.
This store will continue to carry the same fashions and athletic clothing that the residents of Demopolis have asked for, but this new move will allow the store to offer more in the field of men’s dress clothes.
“We will offer more of a selection of men’s suits, ties, hats, and shoes for the men who want to look their vary best while attending church or any other function,” Arrington said.
The store will carry all the new Nike products including shoes, sweat suits, and anything else they come out with, he said. All the NBA jerseys, NFL jerseys will also be carried in the new store.
“We will be also looking to expand our selection of school uniforms for the surrounding counties,” Arrington said.
The store’s shoe selection will improve, as the store will carry Nike, Timberland boots, and all the other name brands, he said. The store will also carry the super popular Dickies work clothes in all colors and kinds.
“I would like to thank the City of Demopolis for all the kind years it has given to the business and we look for many more down the road,” Arrington said.
