OTTUMWA-It was announced on Tuesday, August 8th that clothing store Glik’s will be closing it’s doors in Ottumwa. The business is located in Quincy Place Mall at 1110 Quincy Avenue.
Readers began contacting the Ottumwa Post with the information once a post from the store’s manager began circulating on Facebook. That announcement reads as follows: “It is with overwhelming sadness I announce that Glik’s in Ottumwa will be closing our doors. I strongly encourage everyone to come get extra savings on your back to school needs! We will be running special promos throughout the store. Thank you to our loyal customers for your support throughout the years! We will miss everyone! Please keep our community alive and shop local! Glik’s will have other locations open along with the web for all of your fashion needs! Be sure to stop by the store to show our staff some love. Thank you again!”
The Post called the local store to get information as far as when they expect to officially close their doors. At that time, the Manager said that the local employees were not able to make any comments on the business closing. However, they could refer the media to the home office. In a call to that number, the Post was able to leave a voicemail for Glik’s CEO, Jeff Glik. As of the deadline for this story, the call had not been returned.
Stick with the Ottumwa Post for further information on the store closing once it becomes available.
