)-- Kannon's Women's Comes to Cameron Village Raleigh
A significant change in the retail landscape of the Triangle is about to take place. Kannon's Women's will relocate to Raleigh's Cameron Village in the first quarter of 2016. The iconic Kannon's Clothing has dressed men and women of the Triangle and eastern North Carolina in their Wendell location for nearly one hundred years. Founded in 1916 by Isaac George Kannon, the business is proudly owned and operated by its third generation family.
"Kannon's fills a very special niche in the Village merchandising mix," says Lynne Worth, Senior Vice President of York Properties. "They have a very loyal customer base that has driven to Wendell for generations to find fashion of the highest quality and a broad selection of special occasion attire. The Cameron Village and Kannon's partnership melds together core values of style, service and a great location."
Cameron Village has grown with Raleigh for over six decades. The merchant mix has changed and so has the look of the Village. This carefully crafted merchandising plan has evolved over the years, partnering locally owned merchants with strong regional and national retailers. Kannon's Women's coming to the Village completes the latest phase by providing a needed segment of timeless, women's fashion wear that the Cameron Village customer desires.
"Kannon's Clothing adds an elegant choice for the sophisticated and quality driven shopper," said Worth. "The Kannon's tradition is the perfect complement to Cameron Village's fashion mic.
"We knew Cameron Village was the best fit. Kannon's Clothing needed to be in an environment of independent merchants, which is a major demographic of the Village," said George Knuckley, President of Kannon's Clothing. "At Cameron Village, we have found the same family feel that existed in our Wendell location."
Kannon's Women's will join the Village in the first quarter of 2016, occupying the corner of Cameron St. and Woodburn Rd. Both the men's and women's locations will now be in Cameron Village. The men's store, which opened in Cameron Village in 2012, will continue to operate in their current location on Daniels St
