Feature Friday – Gordon’s Menswear

gordon'sToday’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in North Carolina: Gordon’s Menswear. Gordon Turner opened the store in Greensboro in 1998. The shop carries menswear for all occasions. Earlier this year, Gordon installed a custom oak shoeshine stand in the store and hired a professional shoe shiner, Cecil Summers. Summers, who has experience working PGA events, has been shining shoes for more than 30 years.

Greensboro is located in the Piedmont region of central North Carolina. The city was originally named Greensborough before adopting its current spelling near the turn of the 20th century. The city was the site of Greensboro sit-ins in 1960, a key moment in the Civil Rights Movement. Greensboro is now home to the International Civil Rights Center and Museum.
