A local clothing store who always tries to bring the community the latest in fashion is celebrating 35 years.

Wade’s Clothing on Maple Avenue is holding an OSU tailgate party to celebrate with their long-time customers.

“We sent out invitations to a lot of our customers that have been with us for the 35 years or in the last 5 or 6 years and we are celebrating the idea that they have shopped a local community store for 35 years,” tells Larry Wade.

While Thursday night’s celebration is an invitation only event, Wade’s Clothing will hold a celebration open to everyone Friday starting at 10 AM. Wade says the store has stayed in business so long because they are always looking ahead.

“We are looking at things that are happening clothing wise, we try to be a leader in our field, we are considered one of the top 250 specialty stores in the country,” says Larry Wade.

Wade’s Clothing sells women’s, men’s and children’s apparel. They also have a wide selection of jewelry, OSU apparel and Vera Bradley. Co-owner Larry Wade would like to say thank you to the community for 35 years of support.
