Kenmore clothier dreams big on the Boulevard

by Charlee Harris

On Saturday, May 29, 2021 at 1 p.m Kenmore native Terrence Bailey will fulfill a lifelong dream by opening Ethicrace Clothing Co. at 971 Kenmore Blvd

“Ever since I was a little boy I have always wanted to own my own clothing brand,” Bailey said. He credits his “entrepreneurial mind” for helping him “create his own lane.”

“I have always wanted to be rich, never famous,” said Bailey.

As the director of the Kenmore Youth Basketball League, he is very proud that he was able to open the store despite various challenges. Being an example for young people to find their own lane in the community is very important to Terrence. As a child, his mother motivated him to start his own business.

“She looked at me and said that she was proud of me,” Bailey said. “I stuck to my guns and kept pushing when I wanted to give up so many times, when I doubted myself but still had the faith of a mustard seed.”

Ethicrace Clothing Co will officially open to the public on Saturday the 29th on Kenmore Boulevard. Being a Kenmore resident for 20 years, Bailey wants to help revitalize the neighborhood.

“I chose this location because I see there is an uplifting and thriving community here in Kenmore and it needed a little light shone on it” said Bailey.

Terrance believes in the future of the Boulevard and hopes that it can continue to thrive for years to come.

“My vision in the next 10 years is to be still thriving, and the Blvd to be full of life and a place where family, friends and people from all over the country come visit,” Bailey said.

Ethicrace Clothing Co specializes in t-shirts, hats, hoodies, jogging suits, shorts, jackets, belts and accessories. The most popular items are the jogging suits and short sets. Prices vary but are affordable.

Ethicrace Clothing Co. is located at 971 Kenmore Blvd. and is open Monday to Friday 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Saturday noon to 5:30 p.m. For styles and more information, visit them on Facebook or .
