One of Charles City’s main street staples closing doors

Charles City, Iowa – Main Street’s iconic menswear clothing store, Lidd and Cordray, is closing its doors.

The store is having a retirement sale.  It opens to the public on Thursday and Friday from 9-8, 9-4 Saturday and 11-3 on Sunday.  Hours return to normal until the entire inventory is sold.

Lidd says his career in retail has been his life.

He and his wife Peggy are looking forward to spending time with their daughter, son-in-law and grandson who live in Minneapolis and daughter who lives in Duluth, according to Lidd.
