Davis Jeans Celebrates 100 Years of Business

by | Aug 2, 2022 | Community, Merchants West

John Ward, the owner of Davis Jeans & Fashion, celebrates 100 years of business.

Davis Dry Goods opened for business in 1922 in a burgeoning Ben Davis suburb. Oscar Davis owned and operated the West Washington Street storefront until 1986. “We hear stories from current and former residents,” says Ward. They remember back-to-school shopping at Davis with Oscar––himself––helping with their purchase.

The Ward Family purchased the store from Oscar and remained committed to excellent service and products. Davis became a destination for Hoosiers as the state’s largest retailer of Levi Strauss. Today, Davis Jean & Fashion offers a trendy brand variety––from Dickies to Carhart––and a nostalgic shopping experience.

Shop work wear or back-to-school sales at Davis Jean & Fashion this August. Who knows what memories you might make at this historic retailer?
