Mr. Taylor Gee founded the Pants Store in 1950. It was located in downtown Leeds, AL. Taylor Gee started as a pant jobber in 1950. He would climb into his Mercury and drive the Southeast selling his pants to retailers. People began shopping his warehouse in Leeds and milling through his pant bins for pants. People in Leeds named it "The Pants Store". Taylor Gee said, "They started buying pants from me and they just called it "The Pants Store". Not only does The Pants Store continue their everyday retail trade, but they have also evolved into a uniform supply company. In addition to the wide variety of industrial clothing brands, we also carry everything from socks to shoes to women's apparel. People in Leeds and the surrounding Birmingham area have come to know and trust The Pants Store for the lowest price and best customer service. The Pants Store has since expanded to five locations around Birmingham and Tuscaloosa.
The Pants Store today is still run by the Gee family. Grandsons of Taylor Gee, Michael Gee and John Gee. Their goals and ideals are still the same as Taylor Gee's, to always put the customer first and make sure of their satisfaction.
