A Buffalo Mall clothing retailer has closed its doors.
Glik’s closed earlier this week, and inventory at the store was being transferred to other Glik’s stores, according to Jeff Glik, CEO of the company.
“I want to say that we love Jamestown,” Glik said. “It is our intent to come back to Jamestown.”
Tim Perkins, property manager for the Buffalo Mall, said Glik’s was one of the stores that was offered a relocation to make room for Dunham’s Sports, which announced its planned store in the Buffalo Mall last week.
“It is unfortunate they decided to close,” Perkins said. “We wanted them to stay. We offered to relocate them at the mall’s expense. It was their decision. We didn’t kick them out.”
Perkins said the mall had not received information from the Sears store and Regis Salon regarding future plans. The space for the planned Dunham’s includes the space currently occupied by the businesses.
London Nails has confirmed it will relocate within the mall.
Dunham’s announced plans for a 20,000-square-foot store in the Buffalo Mall on Jan. 4. It is the first store for the sporting goods retailer in North Dakota.
Perkins said he hoped Glik’s will return to Jamestown.
“We’ll keep the conversation ongoing and see what happens this spring and summer,” he said.
Glik said the future of Jamestown is promising.
“We see a lot of future excitement in Jamestown,” he said. “We need that excitement to happen for us to return.”
The Glik’s store employed between five and 10 people with two full-time positions, according to Perkins.
