Feature Friday – Buckelew’s

Buckelew'sToday’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Alabama: Buckelew’s. Located in Montgomery, Buckelew’s was founded in 1992 by Thomas Buckelew. For over twenty years, the store has served Montgomery and the River Region with fine clothing and accessories. One of the shop’s most well-known customers has been NFL quarterback Cam Newton. Newton wore a suit from Buckelew’s to the Heisman Trophy ceremony when he won the award in 2010.

Montgomery is the state capital of Alabama. The city was a site for several key events in the African-American Civil Rights Movement, including the Montgomery Bus Boycott. The Alabama Shakespeare Festival, the Montgomery Museum of Fine Arts, and the F. Scott and Zelda and Fitzgerald Museum are all popular attractions in Montgomery. Nat King Cole, the famous jazz pianist and singer, was from Montgomery.
