    Spotlight on: REL Men's Wear

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Recently we were in Lakeland visiting business customers. After talking to the owner of REL Men's Wear, we decided to share her story:

    Meet Leah Reas, a true local small business owner. After five years of experience in the fashion industry, Leah decided to open a clothing store. She saw a need in the area for a men’s store that catered to the big and tall. Knowing that times are tough, she decided the clothing needed to be affordable but still fashionable. She consulted with a family friend who was in the business of buying wholesale clothing and there she came up with the idea for Rel Men’s Wear. Customers are offered her styling assistance, so not only are there hard to find sizes, but purchasing a suit or casual clothing becomes easy with Leah’s personal touch.
    Leah says, “Customer service is extremely important. I want people to feel comfortable and have a good experience in my store. It’s the same as the service I get when I visit my bank. They are extremely friendly, very supportive of me and I love that they give back to our community. I will definitely look to them for all my future financial needs.”
    If you're looking for great deals on hard to find men's clothing in the Lakeland area, visit Rel Men’s Wear at 933 S. Florida Ave (across from Reececliff) or call (863) 688-9490.

    A boy's dream come true: the Baseball Hall of Fame

    Last updated 4 years ago

    Parker Williams is an 11 year old pitcher for the Knight Hawks, part of the South Miami Youth Baseball League. Parker is used to traveling around the county playing tournaments and is known for his fast pitching. He is not as familiar with week-long visits to Cooperstown, NY and sleeping in real baseball dorms. Now Parker can say he has experienced life at the Baseball Hall of Fame because he was one of 13 players chosen out of 180 players who tried out. Congratulations to our local star and we can’t wait to see you beat your current pitching of 54 miles an hour!
