Chicago, IL, October 25, 2016 (Newswire.com) - In fall 2014, two Chicago brothers, TQ and JQ, opened Q Brothers, a unique retail store that specializes in wet shaving & men’s grooming products, as well as offering a premier selection of niche fragrance. Located in the Lincoln Square neighborhood of Chicago, the 1900 square foot space contains one of the largest assortments of specialty men’s grooming products in the country. At Q Brothers, customers can find sought-after artisan brands alongside European classics, as well as rare razors, blades, aftershaves, and more.
One of the Q Brothers, Anthony Qaiyum (aka TQ), is also the president of the well-known Merz Apothecary. Merz Apothecary is one of the country’s oldest pharmacies and has been a staple on Chicago’s Northside since 1875. Merz has an enormous selection of natural health and unique personal care items from around the world.
With the opening of Q Brothers we have created an oasis for men to come to shop. We've created a place for them to come in and ask questions and try new products in a very relaxing and guy-friendly environment.

Anthony’s lifelong experience with Merz Apothecary, coupled with the boom in the men’s grooming business over the last decade, motivated him to open a new location focusing only on men’s products. Since the launch of the store two years ago, Q Brothers has seen a dramatic uptick in business for men's grooming goods.
“With the opening of Q Brothers, we have created an oasis for men to come to shop. We’ve created a place for them to come in and ask questions and try new products in a very relaxing and guy-friendly environment,” Anthony explains, “With the launch of our new site, qbrothers.com, we are now able to extend this experience to the men outside of Chicago, as well as provide the added convenience for our local customers to shop right from home or on their phones.”
The Q Brothers’ new website is not only just a place to purchase and browse new products, but it also offers great tutorials and educational videos to help men with everything from learning how to strop an old school straight edge razor, how to shave with a safety razor, how to get a great lather with a badger brush, and even how to pick out the right masculine fragrance.
The Q Brothers are truly focused on fostering their community by providing friendly, knowledgeable service, sharing the best advice, and offering all the products men need to look and feel their best. This is so important to Q Brothers that their priority for the past two years has been to establish relationships with their Chicago customers. With the launch of qbrothers.com, the brothers hope to grow that same sense of community with men across the country.
