New Business to Bring Life to Old Store in Downtown Pottsville

Drasdis and Son's New Building in Pottsville
New life is coming to the former Bike and Board store located at 125 West Market Street in downtown Pottsville. 

It will soon be home to Drasdis & Son, a specialty men's clothing boutique which anticipates opening this fall. The store will offer a wide array of business attire, suits, sportcoats, and dress shirts, along with a more casual collection. Drasdis & Son’s focus will be on distinct and lasting apparel at a wide range of prices.

“I am excited to open this store in my hometown, especially with all the excitement and momentum that downtown Pottsville has had in the past couple of years,” said Joseph Drasdis III owner of Drasdis & Son. The store will be completely different than anything offered currently in Schuylkill County. “It's going to be a specialty shop, meaning the brands that we carry you cannot find in big box stores, such as S. Cohen, Grupo Bravo, Christopher Lena, and Mission Belt. We are passionate about bringing a variety of options to people and creating a consumer friendly setting, where they can try things on, touch, and experience the quality of the brands before making a purchase.”

Drasdis has worked closely with the Pottsville Redevelopment Authority and the Pottsville Area Development Corporation throughout this project. The property was able to be acquired with the help of the Redevelopment Authority who, in conjunction with Senator Argall, has been working diligently to provide funding for blighted, historical buildings in Pottsville. Pottsville Area Development Corporation has also been instrumental in the process with their business support and financing. 

“We were able to take a prominent building that has been vacant for over 10 years, bringing new life to it, all with the help of the Redevelopment Authority and PADCO - who were great to work with.” Drasdis said.

Announcements about opening dates and other important updates will be sent out to the email list, in addition to being posted on social media. Follow along on Facebook and Instagram @drasdisandson.
