ATLANTA — M. Dumas & Sons will be the king of King Street in Charleston, S.C., when the men’s wear specialty retailer takes over the adjacent space left vacant by upscale men’s wear retailer A.J. Davis & Co., which closed June 27.
According to David Dumas, owner of M. Dumas, the store will have a total of 8,200 square feet when the 2,800-square-foot space occupied by Davis is added to his current 5,400 square feet. M. Dumas will add two eight-by-eight foot entrances between the stores, and will do exterior and interior remodeling to blend the two spaces together. The M. Dumas store underwent a complete remodeling in fall 2005 that included new hardwood floors, cabinetry and track lighting, as well as a Vineyard Vines shop. Dumas plans an Aug. 18 grand opening for the expanded store, which he said commemorates his father and uncle’s birthdays.
