Wayne and Tammy Collier started Florida Jean Company in 2006. The couple sold jeans online, out of their garage in Florida. At one point they owned more than 1000 pairs of jeans from hundreds of manufactures. They went to yard sales, thrift stores, and retail stores, in their spare time. The search for designer brand jeans became a passion.
The education acquired from purchasing designer jeans was priceless. The lessons learned about quality denim: what sold the fastest, best styling, washes, fits, and what denim remained in the best condition after years of wear is what fueled the passion to open an exclusive shop. They visited many retail shops and learned about merchandising and customer service. The experience Wayne and Tammy gained, was the base for the start of their new adventure.
The business grew, and new denim proved to be a better solution for continued growth of the new company. They moved Florida Jean Company from the garage, to a small store on Corey Ave in St Pete Beach. In less than a year they moved down the block, to a much larger retail store.
Currently, the store is located in a premiere destination, the Sundial St Pete. The shopping, dining and entertainment center, in the heart of downtown St Petersburg, Florida.
At Florida Jean you will find premium national brands like: Robert Graham, AG, Agave, Citizen of Humanity, Lucky Brand, Miss Me, Parker Smith, Nat Nast and Bed Stu. The selection of merchandise includes exclusive designer clothing and denim for both men and women.
Florida Jean Company offers a unique shopping experience, in an relaxed, casual environment.
