The Dr. Jay’s legacy began in 1975 with the opening of our first store, in the South Bronx section of New York. Not coincidentally, hip-hop had its origins in the same neighborhood around the same time that Dr. Jay’s opened its first doors. The urban landscape was changing, and with the new music came a new fashion sensibility. Dr. Jay’s has been a pioneer in providing these urban fashions ever since, growing to 19 stores throughout the New York Metro area.
In the same way that our New York and New Jersey stores serve countless out-of-state and international visitors, our DrJays.com internet store now enables us to share our passion for urban fashion with millions of consumers around the world. Dr. Jay’s has built its success over the last 25 years by offering the latest styles from the leading brands, while continually discovering new brands to bring to our shoppers. Dr. Jay’s was there as urban fashion was born in the inner-city, and continues to expand today both online and offline, as urban fashion breaks free of all geographic and cultural boundaries.
Serving the fashion-savvy consumers of the New York Metro area for 25 years has been very rewarding, and our appeal to the many out-of-state and international shoppers that visit our stores each day makes us equally proud. The next time you are in New York, we invite you to visit one of our stores to experience in-person the legendary Dr. Jay’s selection and service.
