history of Catherines
Offering classic career and casual clothing for plus-size women at moderate prices, Catherines Stores Corporation has more than 400 stores in 44 states. The business fills a much-needed niche by recognizing the fashion needs of women who wear sizes 16W to 26W and 28W to 34W, a size range not readily offered. Petite lengths in sizes 16WP to 26WP are also available in over half of the stores.

The business originated in Memphis, in 1960, with a single store owned by Catherine Weaver, whose goal was to bring style to the plus-size market. As the concept became successful, more stores opened throughout the South. In 1960, a group of investors bought the chain, then called Catherines Stout Shoppes, and formed Catherines Inc.

Growth continued, and by 1980 the company had opened its hundredth store. Catherines Inc. went public in 1991, becoming Catherines Stores Corporation. In January 2000, Charming Shoppes, Inc. acquired Catherines Stores Corporation.

Catherines Stores Corporation prides itself on being a company for women and managed by women. It has always strived to provide outstanding customer service in a comfortable store environment. Sales associates are specially trained to anticipate the needs of the customer and always put her first.
