After almost 100 years in business, a Hamilton landmark is clsoing its doors.
Irving's Famous Clothes at the corner of James Street North and Rebecca will begin a liquidation sale tomorrow (Thursday).
Owner Sid Leon suddenly died in the store December 18th at the age of 67 and his son says they will honour Sid's wish to have a 100th anniversary sale, which would have been two years from now, with a donation box set up outside the store.
All money raised will go to Project Concern, a charitable unit of the Hamilton Police Service that supports various city charities.
Known for its quality suits, shirts and jackets for men and custom tailoring, the business began in 1915 in the Lister Block and moved to its current spot in 1948. The original owners were Irving and Fay Leon and their son Sid, took over in 1971.
