Erday's to Close After 87 Years in Geneva
The Beacon-News reports that Erday's, founded in 1925, starts a liquidation sale Thursday.
It is a sad day for Geneva and for anyone in the area who appreciates quality brand names, quality tailoring and top-notch service.
The business was founded in Geneva in 1925, according to Erday's website. Three generations of family members have run the business since Victor Erday Sr. begain it more than eight decades ago.
It has been a mainstay at the corner of Third Street and State Street, and many generations of Genevans have fond memories of shopping there.
“We knew the time was coming,” owner Victor Erday told The Beacon.
"Erday's is now using 10 N. Third St. which encompasses 5,600 square feet," Erday's website says.
"The building at 10 N. Third Street was built in 1930 and Victor, his wife Helen and four children Victor Jr., John, Helen, and Irene, lived above the store," the website says.
Perlman Jewelers recently moved into the corner space of the Erday building.
Geneva Patch will follow up when more information is available.
