The first store, started by THE George, was established in 1922 and located at Inman Square Cambridge Mass. Over the years the shop moved around the city and finally came to rest at Jamaica Plain, MA. in the 1960’s; when son Benton  took over the helm.

For over 35 years our two main stores were: George’s,  Jamaica Plain and George’s of  Somerville Ma.  In 1992 Benton's daughter Susan opened a store (Benton Shoe Co.) in Manchester New Hampshire. Today, the Manchester and Jamaica Plain stores are open year round for your shopping experience.

Our mission is to provide outstanding, personal customer sevice as well as to provide top quality merchandise and truthful fashion advice for pulling every outfit together.
