Over 40 years ago in 1964, Nitsa Bambalis opened her first store on downtown Winston-Salem’s Fourth Street. News of Nitsa’s Fourth Street Tailors and Alterations spread quickly
in the community, and it soon became known as the go-to place in Winston-Salem for alterations and custom clothing. While we certainly haven’t outgrown our alteration roots—it’s still an important part of our store today—we knew that everything good must grow.
In 1979, we moved our shop to Stratford Road and tweaked the name to Nitsa’s Apparel and Alterations. After several moves along Stratford, Nitsa’s now resides at Stratford place—10,000 square feet of the finest couture gowns, boutique apparel, and accessories, and cosmetics. Our sister store sits in Charlotte’s Phillips Place and provides the Queen City’s residents with simply the best selection of bridal gowns, social, and cocktail dresses.
Even though Nitsa’s boasts more square footage—and locations—these days, our commitment to quality and fit hasn’t changed. Craftsmanship and honesty, impeccable taste, and integrity are still things we practice every day, and personal service is just that: personal. That’s why a stop at Nitsa’s isn’t just a simple shopping trip; it’s an experience, and an exceptional experience at that. From your initial entry into the store, through your fittings and alterations and even your exit, we make sure that you not only look great, but that you feel great about your purchase, too. And isn’t that what boutique experience is all about?
