Going Out of Business


August 30th, 2013



Dear Friends,


Long before we opened here eight years ago, I confided to Christine, my better half, a lifelong dream of owning a clothing store here on Main Street in the heart of Downtown Memphis. 


We didn't know if we could do it; but with your help we did. It was a grand adventure. We are much richer for all the friends we have made.  But dreams end with waking up in the real world. Now I hope to liquidate our inventory, pay off creditors and move on.


Our store will be closed over the Labor Day weekend through Tuesday while we reduce prices and prepare for a memorable and fitting swan song: Our Shelton Clothiers Going Out of Business Sale begins 9 a.m. sharp Wednesday, September 4th. You can expect reductions of 30% to 60% off on virtually everything, including all new fall arrivals. Even our exclusive Pink Pig brand, never before reduced, will be priced 20% off. Please note these extended store hours during the first sale week:


Wednesday, September 4th, 9 a.m. to 7 p.m.

September 5th- 7th, 10 a.m. to 7 p.m.

Closed Sunday, as usual.


It's a busy time, I know, but please make your selections during the first week, while selections are best.


I hope to thank you in person; but you can be sure I appreciate your support over the past eight years. I hope you find some outstanding values in our last sale that will keep Shelton Clothiers in your memory for years to come.



                                       Sincerely,                           Thomas V. Shelton
