Oneida Indian Nation Homelands (September 23, 2021) – After an historic streak of announcing major renovations and new amenities as part of its Best Never Rest campaign, Turning Stone today announced a new retail store with partner Joel Shapiro – Mr. Shop at Turning Stone. A cornerstone of downtown Syracuse retail for the last three decades, Mr. Shop has become synonymous with exceptional men’s formal and business fashion. Shapiro’s second location of the immensely popular menswear store will feature the latest men’s fashion, custom tailored suits, business attire, casual wear and accessories. Mr. Shop at Turning Stone will also offer suit and tuxedo rentals. The new store will open at Turning Stone on Friday, October 1.
Mr. Shop at Turning Stone will feature boutique shopping, with popular national brands such as Eton, Paige, Tommy Bahama and Johnston & Murphy, and a diverse selection of accessories, including watches, belts, ties and jewelry. Mr. Shop at Turning Stone will be located between two familiar landmarks at the resort – The Parlor and the TS Rewards Desk, in the space currently occupied by Oneida Sky.
“We have seen from the success of The Commons that the unique boutique shopping experience resonates with our guests and the opening of Mr. Shop at Turning Stone will be another welcomed addition to our roster of world-class amenities,” said Oneida Indian Nation Representative and Turning Stone Enterprises CEO Ray Halbritter. “Joel Shapiro and the Shapiro Family have a legacy of exceptional service and have built a fashion empire over the last fifty years that is among the most respected businesses in our region.”
Similar to The Commons at Turning Stone and YBR Supply Co. at the Oneida Indian Nation’s YBR Casino, Mr. Shop at Turning Stone will be owned and operated by Shapiro. In addition to owning the flagship Mr. Shop in downtown Syracuse, Shapiro is also an active proponent for local businesses in the community and has served on the Syracuse Downtown Committee, Armory Square Association and Landmark Theatre Board of Directors.
“Opening Mr. Shop in a world-renowned destination resort like Turning Stone will introduce our collection of menswear to millions of guests who visit from all around the country,” said Shapiro.
This latest announcement is a continuation of several significant renovations and new amenities Turning Stone has announced recently as part of its The Best Never Rest campaign. The significant investments at the resort include an all-new Showroom, renovations to popular event spaces such as the Shenendoah Clubhouse and introducing new venues including an all-new Lodge Lounge bar and Lodge Boardroom.
