Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in New Jersey: Northshore Menswear. Located in Sea Bright, the store opened in 1982. Brian George has owned and operated the store, which is now at its third location, for more than thirty years. Northshore is a full-service specialty shop that carries tailored clothing, fine furnishings and accessories, and sportswear. George has described the store as offering customers “Classic with a twist.” In 2013, Northshore added women’s wear collection.
Located along the Jersey shore, Sea Bright has long been known for its restaurants and beach clubs. In 2012, Sea Bright’s business district was devastated by Hurricane Sandy. Northshore Menswear was one of more than a thousand businesses and homes damaged or destroyed by Sandy. Northshore was completely flooded and much of its merchandise floated away. In the last year and a half, Sea Bright has made a strong recovery. Brian George followed through with his commitment to stay in Sea Bright and reopened Northshore in 2013.
