Our History

The story of how Specially For You, Inc. came about is a unique one. It all began in 1994 when the former owner, whom had many years of sewing experience, was asked to modify a garment for an individual in a long-term care facility. What she discovered was a void in the market for specialty clothing for individuals with different deformities or healthcare needs. She decided she would try her hand at marketing this product to other care facilities state-wide. It was a success! She was now on the road to starting her own business. It began very slowly in the basement of her house in the south eastern part of SD, but she quickly realized that she needed to become part of the World Wide Web. She grew both the lines of garments she carried as well as her customer base. After running the business for seven years, she decided that she wanted to spend more time with her grandkids and to retire.

The next step in our story begins in 2001 when Carolynn saw an ad in the local paper. Always on the lookout for ways to supplement the income on the farm, a call was placed to the phone number in the ad - for what she thought was a seamstress. A misunderstanding had occurred: the owner didn't want a seamstress she wanted to sell the entire business! After much consideration, the decision was made to purchase it. With her past RN experience and love of the field, and having the support of family, it was a good fit. Carolynn takes most the orders, answers the e-mails, and cuts all the garments - after the order has been placed. Her two daughters Mellisa and Wendy are main stays in the continuation of the business. It is truly a family run business. With the help of our seamstresses, suppliers, and most of all our customers - we aim to grow and improve!
