Nelson & Co is a young company, founded in 2014 by Brad and Rebecca Nelson to bring a local shopping experience to the first responders who reside and work in West-Central Indiana. After building careers in retail and public safety uniforms; and relocating their family to Putnam County in 2013, they realized the glaring need for a full-service, customer focused uniform retailer. It was when Brad began serving as a Sheriff's Deputy in their new community that proved there was no easy choice for buying uniforms in their part of the State. The idea emerged for Nelson & Co and the planning began.
We have been described as a 'cop shop'. And we accept that, but cringe a little when its said - Our brand is more, so much more than just that. At least, that is what we are building - something more than the local 'cop shop'. We have well known roots in the tactical training and nylon gear world, and a very strong retail background -- two things that 'cop shops' are traditionally not very good at. Clean merchandising and an emphasis on what works (and what doesn't) are usually lost in a 'cop shop'. And many (most?) aren't very friendly or inviting to the non-sworn. We're here to change all of that.
The target customer for Nelson & Co is public safety. However, we live within an expanded definition of what that means. Public safety is the police officer and sheriff's deputy for sure. Of course it includes the firefighters and the paramedics. We serve soldiers and SWAT guys. But it is also the citizen with the interests in shooting and personal safety who lawfully carries with them the responsibility of deadly force, on the range and in their 'regular' lives everyday. It makes sense - the citizen is more likely to be first on the scene than those who are dispatched - they're there when it happens!
Nelson & Co. aspires to be store where you buy your uniforms and tactical equipment. Our focus is to make it easy and for the experience to be pleasant. Visit us in Greencastle or shop online with this website. We look forward to working with you!
