"We're three former UNC Charlotte college roommates with a huge passion for our hometown."
Who We Are
Born and raised in Charlotte, NC, Scott is the idea man behind 704 Shop. Focusing on day-to-day operations, he does most product designs, website maintenance, and manages social media interactions. Scott moved to Pittsburgh, PA in 2006 for a job and was instantly enamored with the amount of pride in the city. He noticed there was a multitude of different apparel brands that the city was very loyal to and it made him wonder why seemingly nothing like this existed in Charlotte. He set out to change that with the help of Jerri & Chris. Scott loves collecting sneakers, traveling with his family, and DJ'ing.
Jerri grew up Statesville, NC and moved to Charlotte to attend UNC Charlotte for college. His background is in finance and has worked in the banking industry since 2005 where he is now a sales and risk analyst. Keeping his hands on the pulse of every product that comes in or out of 704 Shop, Jerri oversees inventory management and fulfillment to ensure you get your product swiftly after you order. He also directs, shoots, and edits video and produces motion animation for the company. Jerri enjoys playing many sports including basketball and baseball, spending time with his family and working on video/production.
Chris was born and raised in Charlotte, NC and is an alum of UNC Charlotte's Belk College of Business and the Business Honors Program. His background is in financial services, where he specialized in retirement planning, data privacy and protection, risk management, and control testing. Chris also brings an entrepreneurial spirit, as he previously ran his own recording studio. Chris focuses on enhancing business strategy, expanding business relationships, and widening brand visibility. He is passionate about volunteering, currently serving on the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance Foundation Board as Chair, the Charlotte Regional Business Alliance's Executive Committee and Board of Trustees, the UNC Charlotte Foundation Board of Directors, the City of Charlotte Business Advisory Committee, and the Greater Steps Scholars Scholarship Fund Alumni Committee. He loves music, personal fitness, traveling, movies, documentaries, has a broad interest in all things fashion, and is a member of MALIK Fraternity, Inc., serving as the National Executive Director.

We're experienced in relationship building, boasting collaborations with the City of Charlotte to expand visibility and affinity for the Official Charlotte Crown (the only local company with this right), UNC Charlotte to elevate the perception of the University and further engage its students, alumni, and partners, the PGA for exclusive products for the historic 2022 President's Cup™, Major League Soccer's Charlotte FC to bring forth an additional layer of fan engagement, and more. We continue to break new ground, redefine what it means to "support local," and bring the "704" community a brand that everyone can be proud of. Whether you're a born and raised native, transplant new to the area or living elsewhere but grew up in the Charlotte region, 704 Shop is built for you.
