“I worked there while in and a bit after high school both on Western Ave and when they opened the Norton store. Even several times at sales in Grand Haven which was also cool. I learned allot that helped me in my 44 year Manufacturing career – being on time always, doing whatever needed to be done in the store, getting along with people and helping others… Art & Jerry were great guys and made work fun at times, but taking care of customers a priority. They helped lots of young people build a work ethic that lasted a lifetime,,,”
ArJers was a popular local clothing store during the 70s and 80s. Like many businesses, economics and markets changed….not every business can exist for 50+ years.
The owners were well liked and more importantly created a legacy that others remember.
