Nancy and Joanie started Skobelj’s in Buras, Louisiana, in 1976. Skobelj’s is their family name in the original Croatian spelling. Skobelj’s originally sold men’s, women’s and children’s clothing of all types. Eventually Skobelj’s became Skobel’s and transitioned into selling only school uniforms. Family and customer service were the focus of Nancy and Joanie’s original mission, and today this is still at the center of everything we do.
