Local tuxedo shop going out of business

Fifty jobs are being lost because of Jim’s Formal Wear closing in Ottawa.

The company says due to their contract ending with Jos. A. Banks, they had to make a difficult decision to close three stores including Ottawa.  Employees have been asked to stay on until the store closes at the end of the year.

Ottawa City Commissioner Jim Less says, “it’s extremely sad to hear the closing of another local business by corporate decision”.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
