"There aren't a lot of stores like Harrison's." It's something one of our team members said in a planning meeting and the sentiment is often echoed by our customers and brand partners. We like being a 'lil bit different and a whole lot special.
Harrison's is a true family business, with the founders and multiple generations now involved. Danny and Emily Harrison opned a small embroidery shop in the Upstate are of South Carolina in the late 90s. They began doing work for local businesses and law enforcement. This led to the first Harrison's Workwear location opening in 1999.
Where the big box stores might only have small sections of workboots and clothes, Harrison's was an entire store dedicated to blue-collar, industrial, and skilled workers. One store became two. A few brands became many. Harrison's was THE place for workwear; they even had a catchy slogan - Harrison's Workwear - works wherever you go.
But it was alway more than just selling work boots and bibs. It was carrying an extensive line of tactical and public safety items for multiple law enforcement agencies. It was bootmobiles coming to a plant or job site to make it easier for workers to find comfortable and safe footwear. It was working with brand partners who care just as much as we do about getting things right for our customers.
Fast forward a couple decades later, now Harrison's has grown beyond Upstate South Carolina; beyond being ran by just the two founders; and well beyond just workwear. Danny and Emily's son, Kevin, returned to the comapny after several years working in ministry at a Spartanburg church. Both Danny and Emily are still very hands on, but are delighted to see not only their son, but a few grandchildren even take part in the family business now.
