Grafton Apparel, which has undergone many names since the ambitious sixteen-year-old James Beatty Grafton opened their first clothing store in Ontario in 1853, is now considered the leading Canadian retailer of men’s dress apparel. Grafton Apparel’s array of fashionable and affordable menswear has allowed it to turn into the corporation it is today with an impressive number of stores across Canada. They also own several retail clothing chains, such as Tip Top Tailors, George Richards and Mr. Big & Tall, making their presence recognized across the country. It is a brand Canadians can trust.

Relevance and Dependability are at the core of the Grafton Apparel’s image. The brand is a household name in Canada, and AVX Digital has been a digital partner in their success.

Their Customer Acquisition Goal:

Although Grafton Apparel is a known and trusted name across Canada, it can be a challenge to stay relevant to customers as competition continues to grow. In 2017, Grafton Apparel hoped to take advantage of the number of willing buyers during Black Friday week, so they turned to AVX Digital to help increase their sales through our digital marketing techniques. AVX Digital was able to show Grafton Apparel the AdWord campaigns that would augment the number of customers online and in-store on Black Friday.
