Why We Do It
How we started in Lubbock, TX and why we do what we do
Culture Clothing is owned + operated by husband and wife, Shawn and Lissa Anglin and our staff. We are Lubbock transplants, dreamers, and lovers of small business.
We opened the doors in March 2012 in an 1,000 sq ft building in downtown Lubbock, TX with most of our life savings and a vague understanding of retail. We never worked fashion retail, but we felt we knew what would work in fashion. What could go wrong here?!
We started, knowing we wanted to do resale clothing different than anything Lubbock had seen before and set out inspired by the resale shops we've visited throughout our travels around the US and World. We wanted a store where you weren't digging through racks of dirty clothes, but a carefully curated collection of kick-ass!
We wanted to incorporate art, music & fashion in a way that hasn't been done before. Throughout late 2014 and 2015 we began to know our customer base well enough to know we weren't located in the right spot to sustain ourselves financially, and because our customers could seldom find us easily we knew we needed a change. We needed to move to where our customers lived. Not just where they live, in four walls & a roof lived, but where they did life. Where they studied, ate, shopped, drank coffee, etc. So, In March 2015 we moved our store to the coolest neighborhood in Lubbock, Tech Terrace.
Since moving locations we've seen an increase in sells, but we've found the place we needed to be to reach the customers we want. We've made new connections and life-time friends all through this experiment called Culture Clothing since 2012 and can't wait to see what the future holds.
Culture Clothing exists to blend fashion, art community in a way that encompasses integrity, consistency, encouragement, creativity, and inclusiveness in every interaction.
"My wife and I started this business because Lubbock was desperately in need of a clothing store that they can call their own! The items in our store are local and keeping it local is important to us. We want it to create a safe place for the fashionistas, weirdos, hipsters, christians, non-christians, skeptics, believers, and the forgotten. Can we accomplish this through a clothing store? Maybe. Culture Clothing is our attempt to do so. So come in, peruse, buy, sell, meander. Be inspired and share your inspirations with us. Without you we are merely a building with clothes, but with YOU we are a Culture." -Shawn Anglin
