Dorothy Blew is also proud of Farm and Familys product quality and merchandise selection. Carhartt and Woolrich are the stores major clothing lines and in boots they stock the world famous brands Red Wing, Chippewa, Carolina, Northerner, Sorel and Kamik. Blew said, We probably have the largest selection in the area of several brands. We do special orders. If we dont have it here we will get it for you.
The stores clothing is geared to the hunter, construction worker, farmer or weekender anyone working outside including women. Dorothy Blew said she plans to stock Woolrichs womens line in the new store along with Carhartts kids clothing. Many young boys like to dress just like dad. Some clothing trends even surprise the manufacturers. Blew said Carhartt developed its Arctic Line for workers on the Alaska pipeline. When the pipeline was completed thousands of items were still in warehouses so Carhartt wholesaled them to its retail stores. To Carhartts surprise, the Arctic line took off and sales have been a phenomenal for many years. Carhartt has also made great strides in jeans and sales have been outstanding.
The North Country Farm and Family Center is bringing a broad array of quality footwear and clothing products to its new Route 3 store. When you combine that with its experienced, customer-oriented staff, it sounds like a winning combination.
