The Mitchell family business started like many, with an idea, the bravery of a chance taken and passion for quality products. What followed were two generations of predecessors, each instilled with similar ideals and family values, whose passion for providing a high level of customer service matched that of their luxury goods. In 1958, Ed Mitchell took the first step in laying the foundation for The Mitchell Family of Stores, with the creation a men’s retail store in a former plumbing supply facility in Westport, CT. What started with three suits and passion for people, grew with the acquisitions of likeminded retailers in Greenwich, San Francisco, Palo Alto and Huntington, NY.
The Mitchell Family
In 2005, The Mitchell family acquired and reinvented Marshs of Huntington, a successful retail staple in its own right, infamously known for providing the best custom suits on Long Island’s North Shore. Chris Mitchell, the grandson of Ed Mitchell, seamlessly relocated and infused himself into the very same community that they would serve. They then began to expand the Marshs brand with a redesigned 15,000 sq. ft. location, which would offer a broader depth of luxury goods catering to an extended audience. Their overall objective was to create an atmosphere that allowed for a seamless shopping synergy between both men and women clientele.
Marshs For Men
They pay homage to the original vision of Marshs by maintaining a high selection of custom suits and accessories. Marshs also offers an extended range of contemporary ready-to-wear from brands such as Rag & Bone, Theory, Diane Von Furstenberg and J BRAND, to formal high-end attire from designers like Armani, Ermenegildo Zegna, Brunello Cucinelli and Ralph Lauren, which successfully transition into the lifestyles of their clients from their daily to signature events. The shoe, accessories, and fine jewelry department are housed with names like Prada, Manolo Blahnik, Tory Burch, Chloe and Temple St Clair. Marshs remains a frequent intimate setting for seasonal trunk shows and designer in-store appearances that can rival most department stores. Shopping specialists also have the ability to procure designer items from all of their stores like Mitchells, Richards, and Wilkes Bashford for a national shopping experience.
Marshs For Women
The signature level of personal service that one will find within the store provides for an enriching experience, uniquely setting itself apart from other retailers along the Gold Coast. Each department of Marshs has an educated shopping specialist present, all of which know their clients by name and are readily available for at home style consultations. The specialists at Marshs work in tandem with both corporate buyers and their vendors’ season after season often selecting items with individual clients in mind. The store is equipped with an on site alteration team, providing clients with complimentary alterations, gift-wrapping and delivery services. Private rooms are available for a more intimate setting while children, have a special place to enjoy an array of treats in their entertainment lounge and coffee bar. Within your first shopping experience at Marshs, it becomes quite apparent that their passion for people and customer service far exceeds their passion for providing quality products. Then again, could we expect anything less from a company whose family motto is “Once a customer, always a friend.”
