The Mitchells have successfully combined strong family values with good business sense as they hug their associates and their customers one at a time, each and every day.

It is a family tradition to be active and give back to the community with their time, expertise, financial support and use of their stores for events. In his day, Ed was actively involved with Westport Rotary and Chamber of Commerce. For years Linda was on the Wilton Board of Education. Bill and Jack have been long standing participants on Bank Boards and involved with local charity efforts. For example, Bill and Jack have been leaders in the philanthropic efforts for the Inner City Foundation, The Westport YMCA, CancerCare, ADL, and hundreds of other charities.

The third generation of Mitchell’s continue the family tradition combining fashion and philanthropy staging special events and donating proceeds to local and national charities. For the Mitchells, giving back to the community is a whole way of life.
