Known as the live music capital of the world, Austin has grown from its humble roots into a thriving entrepreneurial hub. Austin serves as a good representative of the diversity in Texas and generally speaking, people are at ease. Austin residents are equally comfortable in their wing tips as in their boots. Additionally, companies from across the country have moved to Austin wanting their piece of the Austin lifestyle–the Barton Springs swimming, barbecue eating, marathon running, and open space-loving lifestyle.
The by george flagship store is in downtown Austin flanked by two local greats, Waterloo Records and Whole Foods. Their second location is on South Congress Avenue, a shopping district just south of downtown populated by independent boutiques and restaurants. Many Austin residents pridefully keep the flavor of the city by choosing to shop local, and by george is a great testimant to being locally owned & operated since 1979.
The Apolis + by george Market Bag fits in nicely with this approach to supporting local business, while furthering global understanding. Stop by either by george location today to purchase our latest release and don’t forget a local receipt to take advantage of exclusive savings.
