April 18, 2014 – For several years, stuff4GREEKS was an online-only company with no physical location. The web store quickly became popular for creating highly-elaborate custom fraternity and sorority apparel. In the early years of the company, the owners and about 6 employees worked out of a basement. Then in 2009, the company purchased and built out a 4000 sq ft commercial building in midtown Atlanta. The Marietta Blvd space includes a walk-in retail store, modern loft-style offices, and a state-of-the-art production facility.
As their customer base continued to expand beyond just the fraternity and sorority market, the owners decided to name the brick-and-mortar store Zeus’ Closet, instead of naming it after the website stuff4GREEKS. When asked the reason behind the store name, co-founder Ethan King says “[it] keeps a loose reference to Greeks (Zeus was king of the gods in Greek mythology) without limiting us to just fraternity and sorority gear. We serve anyone who needs customized apparel, from sports teams to businesses to non-profit organizations. You can create anything you want; we’re like a tattoo shop for your clothes. We even once had a customer who brought in some panties for us to personalize as a bridal shower gift.” In addition to embroidery and monogramming services, Zeus’ Closet can design and print custom t-shirts in a matter of minutes while a customer waits.
Zeus’ Closet will officially celebrate its five-year anniversary during the week of April 21-26, 2014, at 1339 Marietta Blvd, Atlanta GA 30318. Aside from the typical sales and discounts to be expected at any store anniversary, the staff has some added surprises for shoppers. APGG, LLC, the parent company of Zeus’ Closet and stuff4GREEKS, will host an open house on Friday, April 25th, from 2pm-7pm, serving free drinks and refreshments, and giving free private tours of the facility. Co-founder Monica Allen says “For years, we didn’t really let customers come in our back office, but over time we realized that the few people we have shown around are really impressed with our facility, inspired by our story, and amazed at how we work. So we figured why not let others experience the magic through structured tours – kind of like the tours at World of Coca-Cola.” Interested visitors can RSVP for a tour here.
