Two oldest off-price fashion apparel companies under one roof
Mar '10
SYMS Corp and Filene's Basement opened their second co-branded SYMS and Filene Basement store in Norwood, Massachusetts. Both companies are very excited about having two of the oldest off-price fashion apparel locations under one roof. The new co-branded store carries men's, women's and children's apparel, shoes, and accessories at well below retail prices. Also, the new store has an expanded tuxedo department as well as in-store tailoring.

Filene's Basement was founded in Boston in 1909 by Edward A. Filene as a way to sell off excess merchandise from his father's department store upstairs. Before long, other retailers and manufacturers were bringing their unsold goods to him to sell, and the concept of the “off price” store was born.

For over 50 years SYMS has been committed to giving Educated Consumers real bargains on real designer clothes. SYMS is the Off-Price representative of over 200 authentic designer and brand names….Names You Must Know……in clothing and shoes, for men, women, and children. We offer an impressive selection of styles and sizes.
