Over its 20-year history, much like the community it sells to, the Pride Factory has changed and evolved.
“The gay community has grown and we’re growing with it with nice products, unique fashions,” said Pride Factory owner Matthew Deak. To celebrate, Pride Factory hosted a 20-year anniversary party on March 20.
Pride Factory was previously located near Sears Town at Federal Highway and Sunrise Boulevard but relocated to Northeast 13 Street in Fort Lauderdale about 10 years ago. Lori Deak, wife of Matthew and vice president of the company, said the current location has more space, more parking and is closer to Wilton Manors. She said it’s possible the company could move into Wilton Manors one day but it would have to be a very good deal. “We’re really happy here.”
