About J. Parker LTD

Jimmy Parker opened his first store in Medical Arts Shopping Center in 1972, after working in a variety of clothing stores throughout college. The Medical Arts location would be the place to go for quality menswear and phenomenal service for over 33 years. For decades, it wasn’t uncommon to hear Jimmy’s voice on tv or the radio proclaiming “I don’t know how we do it!”

In 2005, Jimmy jumped at the opportunity to move his iconic shop to Broughton Street as the revitalization of downtown Savannah was underway. This move coincided with the next generation joining the family business, as his eldest son Kieffer spearheaded the effort and still runs that location today.

2015 saw the beginning of a new chapter for J. Parker as Jimmy’s wife Dale retired from a successful 25- year career as a beloved coach and teacher at Savannah Country Day School. Since coming onboard full time with the company, Dale has overseen the rapid and successful expansion of J. Parker. She was the driving force behind the opening of their second location in 12 Oaks Shopping Center in 2018, followed quickly by a third location in the new Plant Riverside District in 2020. In Spring 2023, J Parker opened their fourth location in Bluffton, South Carolina, marking their first expansion outside of the Savannah market and introducing the J Parker experience to the Low Country.

In October 2023, after introducing womenswear in most of their locations, J. Parker Ladies opened in 12 Oaks Shopping Center. This location marks the first exclusively for ladies, serving Savannah locals just a few doors down from their midtown location.
