The Rugged Wearhouse style of merchandising actually dates back to the 1920s, when Lebanese immigrant Z.G. Gabriel peddled merchandise in the tiny coal towns scattered throughout Fayette County, Pennsylvania. His sons, James and Arthur Gabriel, became the founders of what has grown into a chain of more than 100 stores operating in 11 states (including the Gabriel Brothers, our sister chain – for information, see www.gabrielbrothers.com).
The Rugged Wearhouse and Gabriel Brothers organization is a privately owned company headquartered in Morgantown, West Virginia. The deep-discount/extraordinary-customer-value proposition has allowed the stores to continue to grow and look for new expansion opportunities.
DEDICATED ASSOCIATES: THE KEY TO OUR SUCCESS
The key to maintaining our continued growth is the recruitment and development of dedicated employees. Our “associates” work in every facet of the business, including warehousing/distribution, accounting/finance, human resources, legal, retail management, merchandising, store operations, information management, loss prevention/safety, and administration. We are always recruiting good candidates for all of these categories to meet our changing needs.
This is an exciting time to join the Rugged Wearhouse / Gabriel Brothers team. There are many opportunities for energetic, enthusiastic people to craft a future with us.
