Collin Sewell and his team are delighted to introduce E.F. Outfitters, a heartfelt homage to the enduring legacy of E.F. Sewell – a man characterized by resilience and unwavering dedication.
The Sewell story begins in 1911, with E.F. Sewell at the helm of a North Texas hardware store, a haven offering an extensive array of provisions for its patrons. From a sack of flour to a Ford Model T, customers found everything they needed. E.F. assembled Ford Model Ts from wooden crates, bartered for horses, and even imparted driving lessons, laying the foundation for the legendary customer service that defines Sewell today.
In the throes of the Great Depression, the Sewell Family faced hardship alongside their fellow Texas, which led them to relocate to West Texas. Undaunted, they got a bank loan and acquired a bankrupt Ford store in Odessa, TX in 1935. In a remarkable display of resilience, the Sewell Family successfully sold their entire inventory over the opening weekend, repaying the bank on Monday.
Over the ensuing decades, the Sewell Family of Companies weathered the ups and downs of the West Texas economy. In September 2014, E.F. Outfitters was born within a showroom cubicle at Sewell Ford on 8th Street in Odessa, Texas.
E.F. Sewell's legacy of resilience, innovation, and customer care carries on at E.F. Outfitters. Guided by E.F.'s commitment to quality and service, we endeavor to offer our customers trusted goods and unparalleled experiences. Much like E.F. Sewell taught his customers to drive the Model T, our goal is to guide and support our customers on their diverse adventures.
