CLOSING - Ypsilanti government and business leaders were expressing regret today over the imminent closing of Mellencamp's Men's and Boy's Wear, Ypsilanti's longest continuously operating downtown store. The store, founded in 1868, has been recognized by the Michigan Historical Society as a centennial business. In a press release, City Manager Matt Hennessee said the store will be "sorely missed." Mellencamp's owner, Al Walton, refused to comment on the closing, saying that "nothing definite" has been decided.
