About Murray's Toggery Shop
Murray's Toggery has been both a Main Street fixture and a Nantucket institution for over half a century. And it's been family-run almost from the beginning. Philip Murray purchased The Toggery Shop, a men's clothing business, in 1945, and by the early 50s his son, Philip C. Murray, had returned to the island and joined the firm. The store has continued to grow both in size and service; today it carries men's, women's, and children’s clothing, including an exclusive line of traditional sportswear featuring the Murray's Toggery label.
Today Philip's son, John and daughter, Trish manage the buying and daily operation of the business. It's a small - town store with big-city style and a devoted local, national, and international clientele. The store, which is open year-round, is popular with off-island visitors and island residents who find Murray's Toggery perfect not only for shopping, but for that age-old Nantucket tradition, "having a gam"--i.e., chewing the fat. Familiar faces greet you in this store, and most customers linger a while to chat with staff, who are part of the larger island family.
