Small businesses are the backbone of the U.S. economy. That’s why during Small Business Week, the Salt Lake Chamber is highlighting local businesses on our Building Utah Podcast. Today we sit down with B.J. Stringham, president of UWM Men’s Shop.

Utah Woolen Mills, now UWM Men’s Shop, is a 5th generation family business. First established as a mill in 1905, Utah Woolen Mills was a household name for the finest woolen goods in the region. Later, the business advanced to offering retail in the mid-1900’s. In recent years, they have made a name for themselves by serving the Salt Lake City area with the finest clothing in the world, perfected by the best tailoring staff in the nation.
