Reuben F. Scarf’s evolved into the present chain stores over a 60 year span. In 1937 the company was trading out of a small store on Parramatta Road in Annandale, selling everything from Menswear through to Ladies Clothing, Manchester and even drapery – it was the day of the General Merchant.
By 1955 the trend was to specialise. So the general merchant known then as Scarf’s Drapers and Mercers gave way to SCARFS MENSWEAR stores. It was in the 1960′s that Reuben F. Scarfs became a reality. With a mission to be the most specialise manufacturer and retailer of Quality Men’s suits and “cutting out the middle man profit” and selling direct to the public. In no time it became a rapidly expanding and very successful chain.
Over the years REUBEN F. SCARF’S can claim many firsts, In the mid 1950′s they were first with time payments or “pay as you wear” and also one of the first to do away with counters and offer open display.
