Fort Worth honors western wear legend

🕐 1 min read

Fort Worth Mayor Betsy Price presented longtime Fort Worth western wear executive Alan Luskey a proclamation during the Fort Worth City Council meeting on Tuesday night.

Fort Worth city officials proclaimed Saturday, Sept. 30, as “Alan Luskey Day.”

“It’s awesome,” Luskey said. “I’m very honored.”

Luskey, who began working in the western store business in 1970 while in grade school, is a member of the renowned Luskey family, which has served the retail community in Fort Worth for almost a century.

A. Luskey, the family patriarch who was a Russian immigrant, opened a general store in downtown Fort Worth in 1919. Several generations later, Alan Luskey and his relatives carried on the family tradition by working within the family business.

The Luskey family formally owned and ran stores in multiple Texas cities including Fort Worth, Abilene, Lubbock and Amarillo.

The Luskey family bought the Ryon’s western store location in the Fort Worth Stockyards in 1982, and named the business Luskey’s/Ryon’s. Last year, the Cavender’s western wear chain acquired the Stockyards-based store. However, Alan Luskey has continued to work within the store in a management role.
