Gary Michaels to open store in Kearney
Fine menswear clothiers Gary Michaels is preparing to open a new store in Kearney in October, the owners said.
Located on the bricks in Kearney at 2118 Central Ave., the space was most recently occupied by Valley Pharmacy. Though it will be re-modeled to resemble the Hastings location and carry much of the same inventory, there will be notable differences between the two stores, co-owners Trish Ludemann and Tammy Valentin said.
An art studio featuring the work of fine art photographer Jorn Olsen will occupy the rear portion of the store, with select pieces interspersed above clothing racks and open spaces throughout the store. The idea behind the joint venture is to bring two much desired commodities into a community largely underserved in these areas, Ludemann said.
