This fall you will find them at 1505 W Swann Avenue between Salt Pines and The Shade Store in Hyde Park Village. Social Status feels they, "best represent the direction of a new culture for Tampa,”  Whitner said in a recent statement, "The decision to open our newest Social Status store in Hyde Park Village was an easy one. Considering it's a go-to place for entertainment and nightlife--."  

Following a gunshot wound that nearly ended his life, Whitner removed himself from 'the life' moving on to develop what today is considered an East Coast clothing empire. We are excited Whitner and his partners liked what they saw in Tampa, ultimately making the decision to open a store in our backyard. This will be a fun and exciting Grand Opening, be sure to register on 813area and connect to stay on top of local events and Haute shopping spots like Social Status.
