Zeidel opens in Fort Lauderdale


Zeidel & Co. opens a new retail showroom today inside Bluewater Books & Charts in Fort Lauderdale. The company, with a flagship showroom in West Palm Beach, specializes in crew uniforms and personalized goods for yachts of all sizes. 

The original shop was opened by Solomon Zeidel in Port Washington, N.Y., in 1909, and although uniform designs have changed since then, Zeidel’s mission of attention to detail and customer service remain the same, according to a company statement.

“Quality and customer service have always been the mainstay of the Zeidel brand, and we are looking forward to introducing ourselves to captains and crew in this centrally located Fort Lauderdale address,” stated Montana Pritchard, owner of Zeidel & Co.

The Fort Lauderdale shop, at 3233 S.W. Second Ave., is open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday, with Saturday hours by appointment. Guests of Bluewater’s Sip and See event last week got a sneak peak of the company’s new space.
