Our mission statement. These three words are behind everything we do at Puritan, and everything we’ve done for the past 100 years. It’s our tradition, and as a third generation family-owned business we take family traditions seriously.
Our grandfather Abraham Penn opened Puritan’s first doors in 1919, 100 years ago. He had two founding principles, service to the customer, and service to the community. This dedication of service was passed down to the second generation, his sons Milton and Howard Penn who worked in the store from a young age. Today, Richard and James Penn, the third generation, manage the company with the belief that “earn the relationship” isn’t just our mission, it’s our passion.
To us, earning the relationship means we don’t take your business for granted. From the minute you walk through the door, it’s our mission to make you feel welcomed, get to know you, and to give you exceptional service that is often lost in today’s large retail stores. We believe shopping for clothing is a very personal experience. As we get to know you and your preferences, we can help you find the clothing, accessories and gifts that fit your lifestyle.
