Popular men's clothier JoS. A. Bank is coming to Warrenton, and that has the local business community buzzing with excitement.
When Greater Warrenton Chamber of Commerce president Kelly Ann Richardson heard the news that the Maryland-based company was putting a location in the Northrock shopping center, the retailer in her got excited.
"What this is going to do is fill a need," said Richardson, the owner of Kelly Ann's Quilting in Old Town. "Warrenton does not have a fine men's clothing store. To be honest, people run to Prince William and Fairfax to get suits. Now they can stay here in Warrenton. I think this will serve the community a lot more than people realize."
Fauquier Times has not yet been able to get official word of when the store will open, but has left messages with the Maryland-based company's marketing representative as well as the shopping center's leasing agent.
