Even men want a good deal on clothes, but finding them isn’t always easy.
But a new business in Williamston hopes to fill that gap. The Men’s Attic recently opened at 107 S. Putnam St. The storefront is part of the historic Keller’s Plaza location at the corner of Putnam and Grand River Avenue.
Owner Brooke Locke says she has always dreamed of owning a business in that location and vowed that if a reasonably-priced storefront ever opened up, she’d do it.
So when Fabinelli’s Candy Shoppe recently closed, Locke jumped at the opportunity. She just wasn’t quite sure what she would do with the space.
So after some market research, she realized that even though the region has several options for women’s consignment clothing, there were few if any stores dedicated exclusively to men’s consignment.
An idea was born.
“Men don’t want to have to sort through a lot of stuff to find what they’re looking for,” says Locke, who is on the board of the Williamston Chamber of Commerce and is also chair of the city’s zoning board of appeals. “We have quality clothing at really great prices.”
Her initial inventory includes top brands like Ralph Lauren, Tommy Bahama and Lord & Taylor, as well as several men’s suits.
