Paul and Marcia Simon are perhaps Charlotte’s original mom and pop business. After launching a clothing store in Myers Park in 1975, they’re still going strong 38 years later as some of the most recognizable names in Charlotte’s retail scene. But they’ve changed with the times, and their most dramatic change happened recently, with the decision leave the store’s longtime location in Myers Park Center and focus on two locations – a men’s and women’s store – near each other in the Village at SouthPark, a center on the corner in front of SouthPark mall.Paul, who has made a name as a painter outside his clothing business, and Marcia, who has been a fixture in Charlotte’s arts community for 25 years (including stints as chair of the Arts & Science Council’s board and the board of the Levine Museum of the New South), sat recently for a conversation to discuss the history and evolution of their business. Their son Jonathan, who runs the men’s store, added his own thoughts soon after. Answers have been edited for clarity and brevity.
