COCKEYSVILLE, Md. (WJZ) — Cohen’s Clothiers, a popular preppy Maryland clothing store, is closing after 115 years in business.
The store owner Gilbert Cohen posted the announcement on its Facebook page Saturday.
This business, which my grandfather Max Cohen first opened in 1904, has been a source of pleasure and pride to me and my family over the years.
Like all businesses, we’ve had to evolve, from our beginnings as a pushcart in West Virginia and later Baltimore that morphed into the fine mens, womens, and boys specialty store you know us to be today.
It’s been a great run; but with our lease set to expire, for me the time has come to retire from retail and move on.
As a part of its closing, the store will be hosting a liquidation sale. Merchandise will be reduced to 25 percent to 75 percent off.
The store will be closed Jan. 13-15 to prepare for its sale. It will reopen on Jan. 16.
Here are the stores hours:
Wednesday, January 16th, 9 AM – 8 PM
Thursday, January 17th, 10 AM – 8 PM
Friday, January 18th, 10 AM – 6 PM
Saturday, January 19th, 10 AM – 6 PM
Sunday, January 20th, 12 PM – 5 PM
“Goodbyes are never easy; but the satisfaction of filling a need in our community for so many years will remain. Along with our wonderfully talented and loyal staff, I thank you for your friendship and support,’ Cohen writes on Facebook.
The sale goes through March.
