This weekend retailers across the country will offer tax fee items and sales in preparation for back to school. The original shopping center in the city of El Paso, the El Centro District in Downtown El Paso (DTEP) is no different. This year, the Downtown Management District (DMD) in partnership with the Central Business Association (CBA) is hosting an El Centro Back to School Weekend event to give consumers a little something extra with their shopping. This week, we spotlight our two locally owned sponsors, Krystal Jeans and Starr Western Wear.
The event will take place on Fourth and El Paso Street, between 11am and 2pm. Friday, the 5th will be your last day to donate for the Segundo Barrio Backpack Drive, continuing into Saturday the 6th, with a fashion show and music, culminating with a Family Fun Day on Sunday the 7th – all three days will feature food trucks.
Krystal Jeans on 620 S. El Paso, and Starr Western Wear on 112 E. Overland are among the cavalcade of colorful shops on the border. Unlike anywhere else in the city, let alone the country, the proximity to the border and the rich culture attract visitors year-round.
Krystal Jeans, the sister store of Hernandez Fashions, established in 1983, boasts the biggest selection of jeans for girls of all shapes and sizes. The shop is indeed a shrine to denim. Tops, shorts, jeans and accessories line the displays at always affordable prices. Prices you can probably only find in the El Centro District, but the quality in this shop is not sacrificed.
Starr Western Wear started in 1964 by catering to the needs of the bi-cultural farming and ranching community. Fifty-two years later, the area has definitely changed, but those in need of a great pair Levi’s still seek out the retailer. Ladies and kids western wear is also available, just in time for school.
Back to school sales this weekend at Starr Western Wear include but not limited to:
20% off all Cinch Shirts and all styles of Cinch Jeans + $5 off
20% off entire stock of True Religion jeans
20%off all Wrangler clothing and so many more sales!
This list of sales prices are just scratching the surface of the discounts at both Krystal Jeans and Starr Western Wear, not to mention the host of retailers in the entire El Centro District of Downtown El Paso.
Come out for the shopping, the food, and the music!
