{Movers & Shakers} Kannon’s Women’s Store to Follow Men’s Store to Cameron Village

kannons-clothingKannon’s Clothing recently announced that it will relocate the women’s store from its longtime location in Wendell to Raleigh’s Cameron Village Shopping Center in early 2016.

The new location will place one of North Carolina’s oldest family-owned, upscale women’s clothing stores in a vibrant shopping region and introduce more shoppers to Kannon’s sophisticated women’s apparel and well-known personalized shopping experience.

Kannon’s women store’s move next year to Cameron Village will follow the successful relocation of the Kannon’s men’s store to the shopping center in 2012.

“Our decision to relocate Kannon’s from its founding home in Wendell was difficult and carefully considered,” said Kannon’s president George Knuckley, who is part of the third-generation family that runs the business today. Knuckley and his sisters followed in the footsteps of their grandfather Issac George Kannon who founded the retail business in Wendell in 1916.

“Kannon’s recognizes and appreciates the importance of our loyal customers who come to shop with us from throughout North Carolina and out of state,” Knuckley said. “We look forward to continuing to serve these customers and friends from the new Raleigh location with the same friendly, warm and individualized service they’ve come to expect for decades.”

The move will come sometime in the first quarter of 2016 at a location on the corner of Cameron Street and Woodburn Road in Cameron Village. Kannon’s will work with Wendell town officials on the best use of the Main Street storefront space the store has occupied for decades, the family said.

“Going forward, we know that Cameron Village is an ideal fit for what Kannon’s represents to our loyal customers and is the best partnership we could imagine now and into the long-term future,” said Joe Ann Wright who with her brother and sisters Boo Jefferson and Mary Kathryn Phillips manage the business.
