The Cowboy Corner Joins With Cavender's
The Cowboy Corner Story
Over 60 years ago, George Tackett opened a western store in the corner of a basement where it earned the name The Cowboy Corner selling tack to local cowboys. In 1983, George's son, Charles, bought The Cowboy Corner from his father and eventually moved the store to its present location in 1999.
Charles and his family continued the successful traditions started by his father. He credits his wife Teresa with the store's success stating that the store wouldn't be where it is today without her dedication to detail. That family-owned spirit is something that are common to both the Cowboy Corner and Cavender's. The dedication to service, hard work and providing their customers with the best selection of clothing, boots, jeans, and everything for the Western lifestyle.
Cavender's was founded in 1965, in the small east Texas town of Pittsburg. James and Pat Cavender were entrepreneurs who dabbled in several ventures before opening a clothing business. James had a sharp wit, boundless energy, and he found the perfect combination for his skills, personality and experiences serving customers a quality product at a fair price. As a country boy in a small Texas town, it was only natural to carry cowboy boots and we started with just 3 styles of Tony Lama boots. They sold well, and so James bought more. It was just the beginning for this family company that would go on to sell millions of pairs of boots and become the fastest growing Western wear chain in America.
As much as growth is a central part of Cavender's, the people running it still acknowledge their roots in quality products and customer service. Step into any Cavender's and not only will you see pictures of James, Pat, Joe, Mike, Clay, and their families, you'll also see grainy black and whites of their grandparents on the old ranches in Albany, Texas and Idabel, Oklahoma.
Cavender's has been named the nation's top retailer for many prestigious companies such as Lucchese, Justin, Tony Lama, Laredo, Nocona, Rocky Mountain and Wrangler. In 2019, the Cavender Family was inducted into the Texas Cowboy Hall of Fame.
Today, Cavender's has established itself as the premier Western clothing store for the American South and Southwest. Cavender's remains a family business, run by James and Pat's sons, Joe, Mike and Clay, who oversee the growth, development and day-to-day operations. Boots are the roots for Cavender's and the Cavender family wanted to share their love of the western lifestyle with others. Cavender's continuously seeks the best in design, style and authentic western craftsmanship for our customers.
