The Workingman’s Store originated in 1933 as a small shop in Old Town Winchester. They catered to the workingman, and built a reputation for carrying quality name brand work clothing and boots at competitive prices. As business grew, they moved to their present location on Boscawen St. and expanded to include a large assortment of ladies, men’s, children’s, big and tall apparel, jeans, and boots in both casual and western styles.
Locally owned, it had been in the Ambrogi family for over 40 years until sold to the Black family in 2019. Today, Mike and Davanna Black run the business along with their long time and dedicated work family that they attribute to their continued success. Our store managers have been with us for decades, and their knowledge and history we lean on to this day.
With new owners, came a refresh of the image. The Workingman’s Store will also be known as Blue Collar Mercantile online. With the new age of buying online, Mike and Davanna are expanding customers experience offering a new online store. “We will always be at heart, a store front business.
