GA!: Tell us about the history of your store.
Doug: Morgan’s is beginning its 20th year of business in Gastonia. The family business began in Asheville over 32 years ago with Discount Shoes Country Casuals. Also, we have a family-owned location in Greenville, NC.
GA!: What makes Morgan’s different?
Doug: We offer name brands that are priced 20-25% below suggested retail price. With our multiple widths and sizing up to an 18, Morgan’s can fit the toughest feet. We also have a wonderful staff that is knowledgeable and available to help with any questions and fitting needs. Customer service is the most important to us and we want to make sure you and your feet are happy.
GA!: Tell us about your new location.
Doug: We are now located at 2755 East Franklin Boulevard, across from Home Depot. Come and visit us to see our large selections!
GA!: What type of construction was done for the new location?
Doug: We spent the last year and a half preparing for the move, and the endless hours of construction and renovations have surely been worth it. The store sits on four acres and is three times larger with 24,000 square feet. The most unique detail is the collection of 135-year-old doors that have been incorporated onto the dressing rooms and elsewhere around the store. They were originally on guest rooms at the original Charlotte Motel, which was torn down 20 to 30 years ago.
GA!: What’s new?
Doug: We have scrubs for the ladies, but maybe you’re wondering what we have for the men? The answer is Carhartt. Morgan’s is now one of the largest concept stores on the East Coast for the Carhartt brand. We will offer Columbia outerwear this Fall as well, and we currently have Jack Rogers sandals starting at $89.99. With the additional space, we will be expanding our scrub line, as well as adding new shoe lines.
GA!: To what do you contribute being in business this long and the success of the store?
Doug: The relationship with the customers. We are in business to serve people, not to sell shoes. In a small business, you’re the customer, the employee and the investor. The best advice I could give is to prioritize, from creating the experience to being genuine to the customer. At Morgan’s, our mission is a pledge to provide the best selection, prices and customer service for all your footwear needs.
GA!: It was such a pleasure spending hours with Doug and his staff. With 20 years of caring for customers and the community, Morgan’s is the perfect example of business done right in Gaston County.
