Saline’s tuxedo shop has closed its doors.
Perry’s Tuxedo Plus, which opened at 109 W. Michigan Ave. in 2012, announced Dec. 26 on its Facebook Page that it was closing its doors Dec. 29. The business was owned by Dave Perry, whose family has operated Perry’s Tuxedo’s in Adrian for nearly 30 years.
“First and foremost, I would like to thank the Saline community for supporting me and my family for the past 7 years. For the last couple of months, we have been praying specifically for how God would like our family to move forward in the new year. As we saw some doors being closed, we are looking forward to the new doors being opened,” Perry wrote on his Facebook Page. “We will be closing our doors here at the Saline location, and this chapter of our lives, on Saturday Dec. 29th. All in stock varsity jackets, suits, tuxedos, and shirts will be discounted. If you need any suits, or tuxedos for your wedding or special occasion, please visit our Adrian location.”
Perry rented the space from the Saline Masonic Lodge #133, which only recently learned of the decision to close the store. A new tenant has not yet been found. Prior to Perry’s, the space was occupied by Calico Cat.
Perry's is the second retail establishment to close recently in downtown Saline. Sweet Leilani's moved from its North Ann Arbor Street location to open in Tecumseh. However, the business was quickly replaced by Enchanted Oven, which opened in December.
