5 Minutes With...Lamar
Our #1 asset is our people, and we truly value their insights and opinions. Each month we’re chatting with a different member of the Dave’s team about their experiences and favorites.
We are excited for you to get to know our Dave’s family a little bit more through “5 minutes with…” blog posts! Next up is Lamar, a sales associate.
Where are you from? St. Augustine, FL
How long have you worked at Dave’s? 7 months
What’s your favorite brand that we carry? Ben Davis
What’s your favorite color of a Dave’s tee? The new Coral Vintage Logo Sticker Print Tee
Which item are you eyeing for your next purchase? A white Levi’s trucker jacket [Steel Hour]. And I may make some alterations to it to make it my own!
We see so many visitors from all over the world. Where would you like to travel to on your next vacation? I would like to go to Cannes, France. There have been a lot of customers from France, and I have a friend from Cannes, and they always say how beautiful it is. It seems like there’s always a lot of activity and excitement there, and of course the film festival.
What’s your favorite pizza topping? Pepperoni
Anything else you want to share with us? Dave’s is an institution. It’s one of the few family-owned, small businesses left in NYC. It’s become part of the culture, both here and internationally...whether Dave’s knows it or not. Customers come in and say they love the brand and love what it stands for. It’s so great to see that they respect the brand so much. We’re definitely a staple in this workwear trend that’s going on. Not by design, but because that’s what we’ve always been doing. I think people respect that...that we’re not trend chasers, but that we’ve always been there.
Thanks to Lamar for sharing all of this with us. Be sure to say hi to Lamar next time you visit the store!
