Boyds Philadelpha

Alex Gushner
Assistant Buyer

1818 Chestnut Street
Philadelphia, PA 19103

More than seventy years ago, Boyds opened its doors with a relentless commitment to providing customers with the best of the best. Today, in its fourth generation, Boyds is regarded as one of the world’s great clothing stores.

In this age of mass merchandising, when so many retail stores look the same, Boyds focuses on providing its customers with exclusive merchandise. They are proud to offer one of the country’s largest selections of fine men’s and women’s designer fashions. After all, such quality is what customers have come to expect – from the $2.25 sportshirts of the ’40s, to the leisure suits of the ’70s, to the luxurious fabrications and designers today.

Part of Boyds’ commitment also includes a policy of extraordinary customer service. Free custom alterations by thirty-five European tailors, fashion coordinators, and free valet parking are part of the store’s ripe tradition. In essence, Boyds believes in treating customers as individuals. That’s not typical, but neither is Boyds.
