Hello, I'm the owner here at Mansour's. I started working under my father Theo and cousin Norman at age 13. It has been my first and only job. Although I can hardly believe it, I've spent over 55 years here. Over the years I've watched the business develop and change to the modern menswear store we operate today. My Uncle Mike was a Lebanese peddler before founding the store in 1924.
Seeing my Uncle and Dad struggle their way to middle class Canadian life has helped to make me the gentle and easy going man I am today. I am very proud of what we have accomplished and I love to give back to my community. I enjoy socializing whether it be at The Stadium, the Deli, or at the store. I take great pride doing business with those who do business with me. I love my wife Deanne and my children very much. My son Mikhial works with me at the store while my daughter Adele just finished her audiologist degree at Dalhousie.
We take great pride in the service we provide at both our online and our bricks and mortar location. We treat our customers with great respect and dignity. Everyday it gives me great satisfaction to please our customers so if there is anything you need shop online, call 1-800-929-3992, or drop in anytime.
Roger Dorrington, pleased to meet you.
At 15 years old I started working in bargain basement at the old Margolians as a receiver. Eventually I made my way to the floor and the floor is where I thrived! After several years I was promoted to Head of Footwear and Manager/Buyer for the Sportscage. After Margolian's closed I was trying to take some time to ponder the change in my life. Then the phone rang, all of the sudden I was a Mansour's Man. Now I love wearing suits and sportcoats and I'm starting a collection of ties.
My extensive experience and passion has been in footwear. I can tell if you pronate or supinate just by looking at your feet. I normally remember your shoe size, but forgive me if I don't remember your name.
I love to spend time with my grandchildren and to kick around the yard. I love fitness, over the years I've taught many classes at the local YMCA. Also, I ran a boxing club through CANSA and in my younger years I was the New Brunswick Amateur Boxing Champion. I enjoy people, period. Getting to know them and chatting is one of my favourite things. So now that you know me, come introduce yourself, shop online, or give me a call at 1-800-929-3992!
I started working at a place called JJ's Jean Shop when I was 15 years old. After that the Mansour's acquired me in the 80's and I worked under Theo and Norman for two years. Then I went to Halifax and took a course in Retail Management from there I got a job with a national menswear chain and spent 20 years managing stores in Halifax and Vancouver. In 2002 I was rehired by Robert as I moved home to spend quality time with my late father and the rest of my family.
Hockey is one of my passions and I play a couple times each week. Thankfully, I love going to Rambler games and watch my beloved Canadians. Aside from hockey, I love listening to music, going to concerts (especially U2), tending the garden, and playing the drums in my "Man Cave."
I really love clothes and for whatever reason matching colours and decorating seem to be a passion of mine. I love pairing different combinations of suits, shirts and ties, sweaters and shirts, matching pants, everything right down to the socks. Amongst other things, I dress the windows and make all the displays and take care of the merchandising. I take great pride in my dress and nothing feels better than a well-fitted suit. So on that note give me a call at 902-667-8577, shop online, or visit me right here in Downtown Amherst!
Hi I'm Mikhial.
I joined our family business in 2015 after receiving a Business degree from Saint Mary's University. During my time in School I also did Internship's at eOne and CIBC Wood Gundy. Since that time the business has really grown, and we have started selling products online as well as our original store in Amherst, Nova Scotia.
Things I like are reading, sports, travelling, clothing, and my true passion lies in business. I love working and growing the business alongside my father, Keith, and Roger. We work hard to ensure you have the best experience in-store and online. If you'd like to meet me drop in, give me a call at 1-800-929-3992 or just Shop Online!
Hi I'm Majed
I am originally from Syria and moved to Canada about five years ago. I first moved to Advocate, NS where i got a taste of rural Canadian life. Then I moved to Oxford and began working at Oxford Frozen Foods Limited. There i worked with onion rings but my passion was always working with closed as its my trained profession. That led me to Mansour's and i couldn't be happier.
For any questions on alterations please message or call 902-667-8577
Hi I'm Toni
I'm the newest employee to join the Mansour's team. I moved to Amherst, NS about 3 years ago from Newfoundland. I take great pride in being a Newfie and will talk to anyone about it. The question I receive most often is “why did i move to Amherst?” Well my sister had moved for a job opportunity and i looked at it as an opportunity for myself as well. I've never regretted my decision once even though i do miss the smell of the salt water, and all the actives i shared with my grandfather such as hunting, trapping and fishing. The beauty of Nova Scotia has captured a piece of my heart and I'm happy to call it my new home.
My passion for trend following in fashion has helped me exceed at my role in marketing and allows me to be creative in how we advertise our products. I love learning through experience and Mansour's has provided me just that.
