Motsu Socks in Simpsonville is passionate about socks and giving back
From toe and yoga socks to themed socks that help you express your personality, Motsu Socks in Simpsonville has you covered – your feet, at least.
Upstate South Carolina’s first and only all-socks store is celebrating its second anniversary on N. Main Street in Simpsonville, offering an extensive collection of colorful and creative socks for men, women and children.
“We wanted to have a huge variety of socks and unique socks from brands around the world that you wouldn’t find in your local department store. It’s kind of our niche,” said Calvin Channer, who owns Motsu Socks with his wife, Candace.
The Simpsonville store owners, who are as passionate about giving back to the community as they are about socks, have established the MotsuSocks Cares Recycling Program. Customers who donate old socks to be recycled receive a 15 percent discount on a future purchase at the store.
And because socks are the No. 1 requested item at homeless shelters, but are among the least donated, the Channers donate a new pair of socks to the homeless community for every old sock turned in to be recycled.
“Coming from Jamaica, a Third World country, America and South Carolina have been so great to me, so we definitely wanted to give back when we started,” Candace Channer said. “The only requirement of our give back program is that your old socks be clean. They can be holy or mismatched as long as they are clean.”
