The Cavender family announces the opening of their first Florida store.

The Orlando store is scheduled to open to the public in September.

The 14,470 square-foot store will house Cavender’s full line of men’s, women’s and children’s western apparel. Cavender’s is famous for its large selection of handcrafted western boots, and also carries hats, shirts, jeans, dresses, belts, plus western accent accessories. Customers can find all of the top western wear brands such as Wrangler, Ariat, Justin, Lucchese, Cinch, Resistol, Stetson, Twisted X and private label brands, Rafter C and Cavender’s by Old Gringo. This is the first location in Florida.

The store will be located at 11607 Regency Village Drive, and is next to the Orlando Vineland Premium Outlets.

The company is a family owned and operated retailer out of Tyler, Texas with 83 stores located across 12 states. Cavender’s is truly a family operation, founded by James R. Cavender and his wife in 1965. Today, their sons Joe, Mike and Clay run the day-to-day operations. The family lives the western lifestyle, operating five working ranches in Texas and Oklahoma with registered Brangus and Charolais cattle. Cavender’s has become the leading western store for the American South and Southwest.

Joe Cavender, president of Cavender’s, said the company anticipates a great response from the Orlando community.  Cavender’s Boot City and Cavender’s Western Outfitters have become synonymous with the well-dressed cowboy and cowgirl.  

A grand opening celebration is scheduled for later in the fall, details will be announced later.
