Carter's opening store in Ammon Town Center

Ever since my Shoptalk days at the Post Register, I have always been grateful for anyone with a question of a piece of information about new business in the community. Regardless of how it may seem, I am not omniscient. Not by a long shot!

Anyway, I got this email from Jonathan Young on Friday and thought I'd share itL

"My wife and I usually go down to Carter's children's clothing stores in the Salt Lake City area every couple of months since those are the closest to Idaho Falls. I was checking their website the other day to see which store was actually closest to us and the results showed a Carter's opening in Ammon Town Center in October. I believe that is the same location as Albertson's and Boot Barn. I figured your website would be a good way to get the word out to families in eastern Idaho that have young children and love Carter's."

And it's true. The store locator on the Carter's Web site shows that Carter's is coming to Ammon Town Center, 2037 S. 25th East.

Carter’s is the leading brand of children’s clothing, gifts and accessories in America, selling more than 10 products for every child born in the U.S. The company dates back to 1865, when William Carter, an immigrant from Derbyshire, England, built a mill in Needham, Mass., and began manufacturing clothing for children. By the early 1960s, the William Carter Co. manufactured at seven mills in Massachusetts and the south. Nothing the company sells today is made in the U.S.A. The Carter family sold the business in 1990, and it was bought by the Berkshire Investment Group in 2001 from for $450 million from Investcorp, the Bahrain-based merchant bank that had bought the company in 1996. Carter’s acquired the Oshkosh B’Gosh line of children’s clothing in 2005.
