Mario’s is the leading luxury brand retail store in the Pacific Northwest for men and women, with stores in Portland and Tigard, OR and Seattle, WA. Owned and operated by President Mario Bisio, Mario’s is known for its impeccable customer service and for housing collections from the world’s most upscale, high-quality fashion vendors.

Mario was born into the clothing business, spending his early years working at Wilson’s Shirt Shop in downtown Portland, a store operating under Mario’s, Inc, a company established in 1937 by his father, Mario A. Bisio Sr. In 1975, following the passing of his father, Mario changed the shop name to simply Mario’s and refocused it from traditional, general merchandise to exclusive, high-fashion brands. He introduced – and continues to introduce – Northwest consumers to the latest designers, many of them Italian. Mario’s opened a women’s clothing store in 1981, led by women’s Fashion Director Lynwood Holmberg, and has since opened a store in downtown Seattle and a concept store called Mario’s 3.10 in Tigard, OR, which highlights the casual side of luxury.

As a merchant Mario’s goal is to find just the right balance between providing customers with what they want, and moving them forward to the next level, even in subtle ways. The brands sold at Mario’s have become more sophisticated with the aging of its clientele, but Mario’s philosophy is to always keep moving forward and to try new things in life and with style – inspiring the Mario’s mantra: Live with Passion. Play with Style.
