Josephson's in Red Wing, a staple for well over a century, has been sold and Tuesday
was the last day for current owner Tom Withers.
Withers says he’s ready to retire and spend more time with his family and to relax.
Withers and his wife purchased the business from original owners Alfred Josephson’s family in 1992. Josephson opened the the store on Main Street in 1878, 144 years ago.
The store, located at 215 Bush Street, will be closed until Labor Day and new owner Anthony Andler plans to change the name to Heimie’s Haberdashery Red Wing.
