What is unique about your business?

Joe Savino: Repeat customers. Our customer retention rate is nearly 100 percent. Once a customer has experienced for themselves a custom made piece of clothing for the same price or less than they were purchasing off the rack at our competitor, they become a very loyal customer.

What is most important for people to know about your business?

Joe Savino: Get rid of the misnomer.  Adams has the exact same clothing they are buying from Nordstrom or Brooks Brothers for a LOT LESS MONEY and better service and integrity.

What sets you apart from your competition?

Joe Savino: Our skillset. Department stores and internet companies don't employ the same type of employees. Our store depends on return customers and word of mouth advertising. Adams will truly do everything possible to satisfy our customers -- including free alterations -- so they will shop with us again.

Why do you do what you do?

Joe Savino: I spent my early career as an executive trainee for a well known department store. I was very disenchanted when I was taught that corporate profit were always ahead of quality and integrity. I saw executive and stock holders earn huge bonuses at the expense of their customers.  I went into my own business because I believe that a local store intrinsically has lower overhead and  could offer better pricing  and great personal service.  I live,work and raise a family in the community I service. My customers are my neighbors. I would be embarrassed if I did not offer the best product.

Adams Fine Clothing and Tuxedo is located at 1275 Springfield Ave. in New Providence (908) 665-0800 

Business Hours: 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. - Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday; 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. - Thursday; Sundays by appointment.

February 20, 2018

Dear Editor:

As a 26-year-old Scotch Plains resident who cares more about the well-being of our town than about local politics, I am extremely disappointed that the Scotch Plains Democratic Committee leadership has decided to abandon Colleen Mahr in her run for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee.

Mahr, who as Mayor of Fanwood for 15 years has worked closely with Scotch Plains ...

We Need More Women Like Colleen Mahr in Municipal, County and State Government

Dear Editor:

I’m proud to support Colleen Mahr for Chair of the Union County Democratic Committee  (UCDC) and am encouraging my Scotch Plains peers to join me.

I was a first time candidate wanting to make a difference in my hometown of Scotch Plains, when Mayor Mahr of neighboring Fanwood stepped in to help me campaign and win my election to be Councilwoman three years ago.

Democratic Party Would Be Making a Big Mistake by Not Recognizing Colleen Mahr's Talents

Dear Editor:

Mayor Colleen Mahr has been a valuable friend to the Township of Cranford. Whether it’s offering advice and assistance during devastating flood cleanup, supporting the Mayor's Council on the Rahway River, or her insight and assistance in meeting our affordable housing obligations, Mayor Mahr is always there for Cranford.

Colleen’s fairness and integrity is ...

Invest Like a Tortoise -- Not Like a Hare

Aesop’s “The Tortoise and the Hare” is a perfect metaphor for the way people go about investing their money. As you recall in the fable, the hare brags about his ability to beat the tortoise and is overly confident about winning. In the investment world, the hare is someone who thinks he or she is great at selecting “winners” and avoiding “losers.” The ...
