Birmingham has its fair share of menswear boutiques in town and Refresh Clothing is the one that is taking Ensley by storm. Refresh Clothing is an affordable men’s boutique offering stylish streetwear and clothing that will make you look and feel refreshed. The clothing found in the boutique is similar to the style of its owner, Corey Bishop.

Bishop decided to sell clothes after he was unable to find clothes that matched his style and budget. In 2004, he packed his car with merchandise and started driving in different neighborhoods matching people with the pieces that best suited their style.

Five Points West is where it generated the most revenue. After careful preparation and planning, Third Avenue West became the home of her first store in 2005, then moved to Five Points West Shopping City in 2013.

Build a bond with your community

Knowing his clients’ styles also allowed him to get to know his clients. Bishop gives classes in the shop that are open to the community. They discuss the importance of being grounded in whatever you are pursuing as well as in your community through a mural located in the back of the store.

“It’s like when Hurricane Katrina hit. Many trees were bent (leaned) to the ground but did not break because they were deeply rooted. Those same trees were able to go back up and continue growing later. Those who have not been captured and are gone “.
