GREG NISBETT, OWNER

After moving to Lindsay, Greg acquired Henry Housers, a reputable menswear shop that had been in operation for 80 years. In 1985, Greg started a new menswear legacy with Nisbett’s Men’s Shop located on the main street in Lindsay. In 2012, he decided to rebrand the business and change the name of Nisbett’s Men’s Shop to Nisbett’s Clothiers to reflect a new direction, appealing to a new generation of young professionals as well as catering to his existing clientele.
