“The Local Quaran-scene” is a video Q&A series featuring the owners of local businesses in Charlotte we all know and love.  This series is to support our community by getting their message out there, learn how they have creatively adjusted their businesses to stay afloat and to understand how we can reach out and support during this time.

This week I met with local business leader and founder of A B B E Y D A L E, David Watkins.  His brand is one of Charlotte’s leading men’s custom clothing retailers and a great friend of mine.  In this video interview we get to know him and his business and hear first-hand how he’s dealing with the “new normal”.



A B B E Y D A L E has been a Charlotte staple for roughly 10 years and based in the heart of Uptown at Trade & Tryon.  David has been a leader in men’s fashion in Charlotte and has been featured in several publications and has written a book called “Creating Presence-Transforming your Personal Brand Through the Power of Dress”.

Tune in to learn more about David as we casually discuss this “new normal” and how he, his family and business are going to get through this. To learn more about A B B E Y D A L E, please visit:
