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.
MERRILL - Most people enjoy a Thanksgiving dinner with family. But the Merrill firefighters spend their Thanksgiving at the station with their second family, their coworkers. Community members stepped in to make sure the firefighters still had a special Thanksgiving while they were working.
It might be Thanksgiving, but for the Merrill Fire Department, it's just another day
But it is a day with more turkey, stuffing, and pies.
"We had a couple of community organizations that dropped off meals for us which we're definitely grateful for," said firefighter and paramedic Bryson Cruise.
The job doesn't stop for firefighters and Thanksgiving is no exception.
So Park City Credit Union and Hands of Hope wanted to thank the firefighters for their service with a home cooked Thanksgiving meal.
PARK FALLS - Many families began their Thanksgiving Day with a run this morning. Topping off the holiday with a "trot" around town may not appeal to everyone, but for these families it was a way to spend time with one another.
"Trot now so we can pie later," said Steph Schultz, a runner in the Park Falls Turkey Trot.
Families used the Turkey Trot 5K in Park Falls as a way to bond.
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.
