In 1939, Samuel Zelansky dedicated himself to the concept of giving his customers quality merchandise and exceptional service at reasonable prices. Seventy three years and three generations later, it is our pledge to strive for perfection is these areas now and for many years to come.
Samzie s was established when Samuel Zelansky (the original Sam Z) and his wife Reba opened a small Army/Navy store in a suburb of Pittsburg, Pa. in 1939. Two years later the store moved to Trenton and then to Flemington, New Jersey. In Flemington, Samzie s was able to serve the local farming community. Sam ran the store until he died, in March of 1955. At that time Reba s son-in-law Joe Belets and his wife, Pauline (Reba and Sam s daughter) took over the business. Under Joe s expertise and leadership the store grew and expanded many times and became a full service men s store.
In the mid 70 s Joe s son Jeff Belets and son in-law Paul Warren joined the business. Jeff s background in the retail clothing business and Paul s banking and finance experience brought unique skills to Samzie s. Over the next several years the business transitioned from men s wear to uniforms. In 1981 the store moved to larger and more modern facilities at its current location at 28 Scotch Road, Ewing, New Jersey and focused entirely on Law enforcement, Fire and EMS uniforms. Jeff and Paul became the owners and chief executive officers in 1999 upon Joe s retirement. They continue in that capacity today.
