The Auld Phillips store is closing its doors after more than 50 years at the corner of Yale Road east and Fletcher Street.
The clothing store was a retail institution in Chilliwack.
Auld Phillips opened in 1965, and the business grew to more than 60 stores across Western Canada under the brand names Suzanne’s and Jenny’s, Suzanne’s, Jenny’s and Top Shop.
The fashion chain was sold its majority interest to Stern Partners, a Vancouver investment firm in 2016.
The downtown store is closing for good on June 30.
The other stores in town, Suzanne’s, Jenny’s and Top Shop will remain open.
