Dress to Impress & Express Your Lifestyle!

Let’s face it, we all have a different personal flair that reflects our everyday lifestyles.  Some of us head to work with our briefcases and business suits, while others work from home in jeans and a tee. Then there’s the stay-at-home moms and dads out there who find themselves still in sweats when dinner time rolls around. Let’s not forget about our hardcore construction laborers who brave the elements in work boots, thermal gear, and “Dickies.

I know I’m not alone when I watch my son get on the school bus in a comfy pair of Jordan sneakers and whatever shirt he feels like throwing on. Or when I’m on vacation and somehow forget to pack the necessary gear for an outdoor adventure! Well, take off your tie, set aside your briefcase and head down to Carter’s Clothing and Footwear where you’ll find everything you need to fit your lifestyle!

This family owned and operated business is no stranger to South Coast living and has been clothing the community since 1947.  Owner, Kevin Carter, believes in catering to loyal locals and visiting vacationers.  He was cool enough to sit down with me and fill me in on everything the store has to offer.   As we walked down to his office, I passed by piles of shoe boxes just waiting to be restocked as the merchandise flies off the shelves!  I asked Kevin what keeps the customers coming back and he was ready with a list of creative, durable fashion and footwear with distinct quality and style, at the guaranteed lowest prices in town!

“Family Owned and Operated Since 1947”

Carter’s is dedicated to providing quality clothing and footwear for whatever your lifestyle! From Carhartt construction gear to a full line of work boots including: Timberland; Timberland Pro; and Wolverine.  Best-selling name brand sneakers, including: the ever popular Jordan’s; Nike; New Balance; and Adidas.  An extremely huge selection of the lowest priced Levis Jeans that you won’t find anywhere else in town.  Seasonal accessories from: leading brand name hats; socks; gloves; scarfs; underwear; t-shirts; sweatshirts; jackets and so much more!

(A little piece of advice if you’re a Jordan’s sneaker chaser- you better get there early on any given Saturday release day to score the latest pair of “kicks” that Carter’s is sure to have in stock!)

On vacation? Experiencing unexpected New England weather?  No problem!  Carter’s has popular Native brand sunglasses, sandals, jackets, rain gear, flannel and fleece apparel, and more! Just in time for tourist season, Carter’s is one of the first local retailers to stock the award-winning new line of TownWear apparel, custom designed to celebrate places that are meaningful to you!  So rest assured you will find that special South Coast souvenir right here at Carter’s.  Go home feeling good that your TownWear purchase is part of a great cause because a portion of the proceeds contribute to local charities making a difference in the community!

In order to serve every customer, Carter’s carries all sizes, from medium and wide widths to big and tall sizes.  Take advantage of special orders and free layaway too!

Be sure to stop on by Carter’s Clothing and Footwear at one of their convenient South Coast locations, where parking is always Free and Easy!!  (If you are familiar with New Bedford and Fall River- then you know free and easy parking is a huge SCORE!)

As a young girl I kept a daily journal of my summers on the South Coast and Cape Cod. I love to write about my travels, photograph, and meet tourists and locals who are making a difference in our community. My mission is to keep you updated on all the South Coast has to offer and I welcome you to come along with me on this journey!
