FOURANTZIS store is one of the oldest stores in the town of Kilkis - Macedonia Greece, engaged in retailing men's clothing.
It is a business with a long history and a life span of about 100 years. It was established in 1914 by Pantelis Fourantzis, grandfather of the current owners, in the exact same spot that it is operating today.
From 1917 until 1922, the operation of the store gets suspended as Pantelis Fourantzis joins the armed forces during the Asia Minor War. Upon returning, he restarts his business this time as a local tailoring shop, since, having been appointed as a tailor during his military service, he has been taught the art of tailoring and has developed his skills.
In 1950, Konstantinos Fourantzis joins the business at the age of 16 and becomes an apprentice by his father’s side. After his military service, he takes charge of his father's business and keeps the tradition of the family business going. Being a restless spirit, he decides to learn some of the secrets of tailoring and cutting fabric by completing an intensive course in Italy.
During the 1960s and 1970s, a large number of soldiers reside in Kilkis, which helps the shop to develop a specialty in tailoring military uniforms for officers.
In the 1970s, Constantinos Fourantzis, seeing the ever-increasing demand for ready-to-wear clothing, manages to identify the market trend and begins trading off-the-peg clothing, mainly suits.
Since 1980, the shop has been trading men's ready-to-wear garments only. Special emphasis is placed on companies that stand for designers’ men's clothing of high quality.
2000 was a landmark year as the shop got completely renovated and the company expanded its activity to include footwear.
Pantelis & Eleni Fourantzis, third generation owners, keep the tradition by preserving the values that have helped the "FOURANTZIS" company stand out as a synonym for quality and customer-centred attitude.
Today, we look forward to new challenges and we partake in the cyber business always trying to keep you, our customers, as our focal point, offering you the same quality services whether you are in close proximity or miles away.
