One thing that stands out about small businesses in Downtown Wilmington that you seldom see in big box stores is personal service. Stores like Isaac’s Men’s Wear at the corner of Front and Princess Streets go the extra mile to cater to customers’ needs because good service leads to repeat business and loyalty is important to success for downtown merchants.
Isaac Lasar, the owner of Isaac’s Men’s Wear, approaches business with a good attitude and has been selling quality clothing and accessories for men at affordable prices for 45 years. He is the perfect example of a local merchant—he abides by the Golden Rule with all his customers and takes the time to get to know them personally.
He knows their names and listens to stories about their lives and has even served three generations of some families. Isaac sees himself as a father to all his customers.
This personal approach laid a solid foundation for Isaac’s business. When Independence Mall was built in the 1970s, a number of merchants moved to the suburbs. Isaac decided to stay because he knew he had the perfect location and great clients. He ramped up his inventory, offered an alterations service, catered to large groups like wedding parties and church choirs…and still operates successfully today.
Isaac listens to what his customers want and he stocks shirts by Bagazio, Montique and Blue Jazz, suits by Vinci, Lucci and Stacy Adams and pants, coats and hats in a full range of sizes. His big inventory is the perfect solution for the last-minute shopper. If you need something unique, Isaac will oblige with a special order.
If you’re a man who wants to sharpen up your style and benefit from personal service, shop at Isaac’s in Downtown Wilmington.
