Today we’d like to introduce you to Beth Pocalyko and Maureen Bruneau.
Hi Beth and Maureen, we’re thrilled to have a chance to learn your story today. So, before we get into specifics, maybe you can briefly walk us through how you got to where you are today?
We started John’s Men’s Clothing in January 2019. After a day of holiday shopping, we realized there were no Men’s clothing stores in Bel Air. There were plenty of women’s shops but no men’s shops. After talking to the town of Bel Air who provided some marketing stats for us and chatting with our local banker, we decided to take the plunge and open a Men’s clothing store. Beth worked with a local realtor at Street Realty and found our location at 10 W Pennsylvania Ave. Coming up with the name of the store was easy. We named it after my son, Beth’s brother John who passed in 2015. We even use his signature as logo for the store. The motto for the store is work hard play hard dress easy. We want every man (and woman) who shops at our store to find their specific style so they can dress easy and feel great in their clothes. We carry a variety of brands that you can’t find elsewhere.
Alright, so let’s dig a little deeper into the story – has it been an easy path overall and if not, what were the challenges you’ve had to overcome?
Our motto is Work Hard. Play Hard. Dress Easy.
Opening up a new business can be challenging and a lot of work especially during the pandemic.
However, we are a mother and daughter team that enjoys working hard together, and helping our community dress easy!
Our idea of a men’s boutique over the last two years has been rewarding and fun. We have found and built an amazing community.
We have also managed to find and choose vendors that can deliver great merchandise even during these challenging times.
Before we go, is there anything else you can share with us?
