DC Designers Tux Shop announced last week it will open a new “tuxedo haberdashery” store late this summer at CoolCreekVillageon 146th St. inCarmel.

The men’s formal wear store, which has locations in Castleton andCarmel, at622 Station Dr., has been serving theIndianapolisarea since 1977.

Owner Pete Corbett said the business will close itsMerchantPlazalocation as part of the move, though the Castleton store will remain open.

“The 146th Street/Cool Creek area is a more conveniently central location for our client base, which includes Carmel, Westfield, Fishers, Noblesville and Zionsville,” he said. “We’re excited about the vibrancy of this great shopping area, and look forward to becoming part of it.”
The new location, Corbett said, will have special focus on the experience for the shopper.

“Our newest location will be decorated to create the ambience of an elegant men’s haberdashery, where our clients will receive personal attention down to the last detail of their gentlemen’s formal wear needs,” said owner Pete Corbett.

The shop is family owned and operated – Corbett runs the business with help from sons Don and Bill, daughter Kim and a number of grandchildren. Corbett said he’s seen generations of customers come to the shop as well.

“We are unique in that many of the young men we helped with prom tuxes in the 80s returned to us for their weddings, and are now bringing their sons to us for their prom tuxes,” he said. “It’s a lot of fun to see the generations!”

The new DC Designers Tux Shop will be located directly in front of LA Fitness inCoolCreekVillage. The shop’s opening is scheduled for the beginning of August.
