OUR STORY

OUR STORY

Wormser’s is an online “new-age” department store. Our focus is to offer trend-driven merchandise that will best accessorize your everyday home or lifestyle & always made with sustainability in mind. Please note: all items can be purchased in bulk via our wholesale department or individually via our retail shop.
Despite the fact that we are launching our store in a new era of retail, Wormser’s store has a long history of traditional retail. Beginning in the early 1890’s when Meyer Wormser came to the United States from the France/Germany region, he settled in Louisiana amongst other French immigrants to re-open his business from abroad. In 1910 he opened his department store offering Men’s, Women’s and Children’s apparel and accessories. Throughout the 1900s Wormser’s was owned by many generations of Wormser family members and had numerous locations throughout Louisiana all the way until 2009 when John Wormser closed the last store to launch his writing career.
By combining our rich history with Katie Wormser’s 10 years of experience in the retail industry in New York City, our online shop will have the ability to offer our customers a  premium experience that they can trust.
After all, our mission is making YOU look good.
