North Decatur Plaza, as it turns out, has become a favorite shopping center for men because of its unique mix of businesses. At Finders Keepers Menswear, we have many male customers who make us a part of their week and we appreciate all these guys! In honor of our wonderful menswear customers, we hold our annual menswear sale week before Father’s Day and take 25% off your total menswear purchase. It’s going on right now through Sunday!
Often our men arrive carrying just-purchased albums or CDs from Wuxtry Records. I stopped in myself not too long ago and found it was an awesome used record, DVD and CD store with a retro feel and lots of music to peruse through. Boxes of old albums were pouring in the door for the owner’s approval and lots of (mostly male) shoppers were purchasing in the short time I was there. It’s one of the oldest businesses in the center and quite successful.
Play it Again Sports moved in over a year ago and has been a great addition to our Strip Center. I’ve sold sporting goods there and made purchases. They have a store packed with sports equipment from treadmills to golf clubs and baseball bats to athletic shoes. They sell kids bikes, adult bikes, kayaks and paddle boards and bring in scores of male customers every day.
This store started at North Dekalb Mall about 20 years ago and is a busy place of buying, selling and trading used sporting goods.
Men can be seen early on weekday mornings at Sarah Donuts picking up donuts for the entire office or practice, and on Saturday mornings grabbing a box for the family. Sarah Donuts are the best tasting and best priced in the area and we know men love donuts!
Men also frequent the Cut-Zoo, Rainbow Grocery, Choco-latte and Mediterranean Grill. I know all the camera enthusiasts were sad to see the Camera Doctor retire and close his store. It’s an empty store front just waiting for a new business!
Bring Dad or your best male pal to North Decatur Plaza between now and Father’s Day! Spend a few hours, peruse through the merchandise at all of our shops, enjoy good food, and best of all, support small and local businesses.
Happy Father’s Day!
