Welcome to Sound Bite Q, the column that thanks advertisers who support SFGN. We invite you to support them, because without their outreach to us, we would not be here to reach out to you. More importantly, local papers only survive in our busy world because we are all connected to each other. For me, this column does more than encourage you to patronize one of SFGN’s advertisers. It lets you know a little more about our friends and enables you to feel a little more comfortable using their services with the limited dollars you have.

4 Men, Clothing and Beyond

Robert Bolen of 4Men Clothing has been open for four years. He says that many customers come in and say that they were unaware that he was there since the store is on NE 4th Ave, south of what's known as “The Drive.”   He said many customers are pleasantly surprised to see how many good stores are opening in that area, essentially expanding "The Drive" southward, closer to Sunrise Boulevard.

"We want people to know we're here and that more and more businesses are opening up on the south end of Wilton Drive (technically 4th Ave)" said Bolen.   While 4Men Clothing carries athletic wear, t-shirts, underwear and beyond, they also carry one of the biggest selections of swimwear at some of the lowest prices, so if you haven't found that perfect swimsuit yet this summer, stop in an see what they have.   Prices at 4Men Clothing are competitive, said Bolen, "We will match anyone else's price... just bring proof"
