Men’s Wearhouse has been serving the Farragut and surrounding communities for one year.

“We are very happy to have opened our second full service Men’s Wearhouse in Farragut,” Randy Mazzu, Men’s Wearhouse regional director, said.

“It’s been great,” Leslie Reyes, the Turkey Creek store manager, said about business in the past year. “We are still being discovered.”

“The store has had a steady increase over the year, and we think it will do very well over the coming years,” Mazzu said. “The management team and staff are very customer-friendly and have already begun to develop a steady group of repeat customers.

“As the team continues to provide excellent service to the surrounding community, the business will continue to grow and we look forward to seeing it be very successful,” he said.

Men’s Wearhouse’s Turkey Creek store, 11477 Parkside Drive, has a team of eight serving Farragut area customers, Reyes said.
