Jockey International, Inc. will relocate its existing 39th Street Closeout Center to the downtown harbor front area of Kenosha, Wis. Jockey plans to open the new store during the Memorial Day holiday weekend.
In addition to offering a wide range of Jockey’s regular product line at discounted prices, the new Jockey Factory store will offer closeout merchandise that is unavailable at other Jockey stores.
Staff members currently at the 39th Avenue location will make the transition to the new location. Jockey has operated the 39th Avenue store location since 1977.
“Jockey has been a part of the fabric of Kenosha for almost 120 years,” said Jockey chairman and chief executive officer Debra Waller. “Having a downtown store location is a great way to demonstrate Jockey’s commitment to serve the Kenosha community, and I believe that the design of this store makes it a place that all Kenoshans can be proud of. We think it will only further enhance the wonderful downtown area.”
Jockey plans to build a nearly 6,000 square foot retail store at its new location.
Jockey will share the store’s building and lease with the Kenosha Area Business Alliance, which will operate from the building’s second floor.
