Our Story

On June 9th, 2012 J.R. Crider’s officially opened its doors. Although our original storefront was a meager 1,000 square feet, it was well received by the Dahlonega community and the surrounding counties.  The following summer we expanded our original storefront by tripling the store’s square footage.  With the expansion came a ladies section, a home goods section and a new lounge featuring complimentary snacks, beverages and entertainment.  



In light of the overwhelming success of our Dahlonega storefront and our rapidly growing Hall County customer base we decided it was time to add a second J.R. Crider’s location just off the Gainesville, Ga Downtown Square. Our new location opened its doors on August 23rd 2014 featuring its own men’s, ladies and home goods sections as well as a brand new 500 square foot lounge.  



 In the summer of 2016 we opened our third location just off the downtown square in Cumming, GA. After much prayer and consideration about where to locate the store we decided to continue our tradition of supporting the revitalization of North Georgia’s historic downtown areas. In our eyes, the charm and character of a historic downtown setting just cannot be matched by a commercialized development and we look forward to seeing future J.R. Crider’s storefronts pop up throughout the region in the years to come! 



A store that does more…

From the inception of our company our goal has always been to provide more than just a clothing store. J.R. Crider’s exists to bring Glory to God by loving our crew, serving our customers and bettering our communities. It is our mission to provide a shopping experience that shares and shows the love of Christ through a unique environment, quality products and genuine hospitality.
