At Age 150, Weitzenkorn’s Still Selling Its Strengths

POTTSTOWN PA – Weitzenkorn’s, the men’s clothing store on East High Street downtown that offers everything from black tie to beachwear, is celebrating its 150th anniversary … still standing after a shifting retail landscape and a decline of Pottstown’s manufacturing base squashed other small businesses, The Philadelphia Inquirer newspaper reported Thursday (Nov. 6, 2014).

Weitzenkorn’s may be the second-oldest independent menswear shop in the United States, behind Levy’s of Nashville, which has been run by the same family since 1855. Yet Weitzenkorn’s may be observing its anniversary at a time when Pottstown’s economy is showing some positive momentum,” the newspaper added.
