Williamson’s Clothier in Chicopee to close doors forever

Specialty men's clothing store has been open for 20 years

CHICOPEE, Mass. (WWLP) – A longtime men’s clothing store in downtown Chicopee is closing. Willliamson’s Clothier, located at 223 Exchange Street, has been selling men’s clothing for the past 20 years.

Store owner Ken Williamson has been in the trade for 60 years. He says they have always sold top-quality clothing with great customer service, but what new generations want has changed, and many are making purchases online.

Aside from the changes in the business, however, Williamson said it has been a great run, and it is just time to retire.

“Greatly appreciate all the support we had for over twenty years, you know. The people, like I say the people who have been in, they aren’t just customers, they are friends. They really are good people and I just want to thank them. Right from the get-go until now it’s been great,” Williamson said.

He will be selling his entire inventory from Thursday 9:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M., Friday 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and Saturday and Sunday from 1:00 P.M. to 5:00 P.M.
