MERRILL - For the last 40 years, people looking for a special, tailored fit, could find it on Main Street in Merrill.
But soon, they won't be able to anymore.
The Guy's Shop and Thelma's will be closing.
The Guy's Shop opened in 1972 and Thelma's opened five years later.
Three years ago, the two stores combined.
The clothing stores sells men and women's clothes along with jewelry and fixtures.
Co-owner Jack Kleinschmidt says it's tough to see his business go.
"It's bitter sweet because we have a lot of really good customers," Kleinschmidt said.
"We call them clients and that have really become good friends. They know that if they need a particular thing, they can come to us."
Longtime customer and business owner Gloria Kunkel remembers when people from out of town came to check out the store.
"There's people coming all the way from down by the Milwaukee area. Older couples would come and spend the day here to do their shopping and then go down the street to do their checker turn and have their lunch," said Kunkel.
"They'd spend the day here in town and visit other stores because they came here to shop and get their clothes for their special occasions."
You still have a chance to get a good deal.
Today was invite only for clients, but the store will be open to the public until it closes for good.
The store hours are Monday through Friday 9 a.m. until 8 p.m., Saturday 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and Sunday 12 p.m. until 4 p.m.
RHINELANDER - Nineteen months ago, 10 police agencies surrounded the Tripoli home of Kenneth Welsh.
Police say Welsh caused a three-hour standoff, threatened to blow up his house, and threatened to kill his wife.
Later in court, he was convicted of two felonies and sentenced to three years in prison by Oneida County Judge Michael Bloom.
But now, those convictions and prison sentence have been erased. This month, while in prison, Welsh argued he didn't fully understand all the elements of one of the crimes to which he pleaded no contest, first-degree recklessly endangering safety. Welsh's motion put some of the blame on his defense attorney, Rod Streicher.
RHINELANDER - A number of Rhinelander police and firefighters will work a weekend morning shift in December and won't get paid for it. It's an extra task they're happy to help with.
The Rhinelander Police Department's Shop With a Cop program returns December 16. Police and firefighters take 20 third grade students from Crescent, Pelican, Zion, and Nativity schools shopping for Christmas presents at Walmart. The schools recommend students for the event.
RHINELANDER - This holiday season, you might want to tell your child to hug family members at holiday gatherings.
The Girls Scouts of the USA hopes you won't. The organization is saying daughters don't owe anyone physical affection, and that the expectation of hugs and kisses could have bad aftereffects later in life.
"I think for some people, it is a new concept," said Melissa K., the domestic violence coordinator at Tri-County Council on Domestic Violence and Sexual assault, which is based in Rhinelander.
In a post, the Girl Scouts of the USA told parents their daughters don't "owe anyone a hug. Not even at the holidays."
