The Plum was established in 1967 when founder, Isaac Mishkin, made the bold move to expand his family’s millinery business and transition into women’s bridge fashion. Isaac used his knowledge of buying and selling women’s fashion to open “The Plum” in the heart of downtown Harrisburg, PA. Due to great success, he then opened the second Plum in Camp Hill, PA.
Collectively, our stores have been dressing not only local patrons but also out-of-towners who specifically seek out our wares. As a result, The Plum has been one of the few retailers to thrive through every challenge that Harrisburg has endured, past and present. In 1992, Isaac’s daughter Kirsten kept the family tradition and joined The Plum. Her business degree, coupled with her background in fashion, gave the stores the edge that was needed.
Isaac and Kirsten are presently still running the downtown Plum location while our long time employee, Maria Gregory has taken over responsibility with our new addition, Kate Querry! We all take pride in our passion for providing the best service to our customers.
Overall, the two stores fill any fashion need that a woman could possibly dream of. Whether you’re looking for moderate to bridge pricing, casual to dressy, petite to plus, The Plum has it all! Our stores are filled with hand selected merchandise from all over the world. Our experience and knowledge is unequivocal, and our sales people are here to assist.
The Plum family takes pride in the fact that we have trained sales people with extensive knowledge of our product lines and an eye for what looks best on each individual patron. We shop the ever-changing market continually for new merchandise that puts us above the rest! Thousands of customers have continued to shop and support our business since the start and we appreciate every one of them. In the fast-paced environment of today, customer service can be hard to reach. However, we feel we have mastered it and look forward to meeting you!
