Our Story


Our story began with a card table set-up at a local flea market, selling snap-backs and fitted hats at discounted prices to weekend warriors. After 10 years of hustle & hard-work, we have become a highly-visited local shopping destination for men’s, women’s and children's clothing.

Always keeping an alternative, cutting-edge culture in mind, we actively seek out the best deals on skate & surf lifestyle items so that we can bring you the most coveted styles at a percentage of what our customers would normally pay. 


We treat our customers like family and pride ourselves on the service that we provide. From our family friendly sales floor to the expert-level brand knowledge of our young staff, we provide you and yours with a shopping experience that is rare in today's fast paced society.

We want shoppers to recognize the variety of brands they are able to find at our store. We pride ourselves on carrying labels that are hard to find or just starting to gain popularity.

A store like Primitive Threads is original to Lancaster.

Supporting small, burgeoning brands is a passion of ours.

A store like Primitive Threads is original to Lancaster. No other shops within the surrounding area offer the kind of merchandise that we carry. Today, people do not want to have to pay full retail value. Shoppers seek out deals and discounts in all areas of their day-to-day life. By working with exclusive vendors and distributors, we can provide this to them.
