History/Who We Are

We started Paul Simon Co. in 1975 in our Myers Park store.  We opened a SouthPark location in 1980. In 1995, we added our Myers Park women’s store.

In each case, the market needed and wanted a locally owned clothing store offering a high level of service and selection aimed at the Charlotte market.

We shop for style, value and quality.  We edit collections so they are appropriate for our customers in their professional and personal lives.

We offer professional and personalized service, and we honor each customer’s time and needs.

Our goal is to develop a relationship that creates trust and comfort.
