Carroll Reed Ski Shop Inc was an outstanding chain for skiwear, outerwear and classic women’s clothing. The essence to the brand was women (many would say the preppy women of the Eastern Seaboard) who preferred enduring styles and had an eye for the emblems of quality and distinction. The clothes bordered between cute and matronly. Back in the day, Carroll Reed targeted women 40-65 but the people who found the Carroll Reed Ski Shop brand charming were ageless.

Carroll Reed helped define the style of American skiing through a chain of stores that sold skis and ski clothing. While recovering from a ski accident in Jackson, N.H., in 1934, Mr. Reed, became captivated by the Mount Washington Valley in New Hampshire, and saw its potential as a ski resort. Within two years, he founded one of the first ski schools in New England and started the first of the Carroll Reed stores, importing Scandinavian ski wear that was sold through ski shops and mail order. His holiday catalogue with a back-cover photograph of the Reed family was a favorite of his customers. In 1969, Mr. Reed sold the chain, which by then consisted of a mail-order business, two stores, and several mountain shops. Carroll Reed® is a registered trademark currently owned by The TJX Companies, Inc.
