Re: Jos. A. Bank in Quincy, Illinois

Dear Mr. Neutze:

I am writing in regards to the potential closing of the Jos. A. Bank store in Quincy, Illinois. The Quincy store has been a very important business in downtown Quincy for over 20 years and is a destination store for men shopping for premium business wear from a 50-mile radius. Quincy is a regional center for retail shopping, dining and entertainment which is the reason retailers continue to open new stores in Quincy.

It is my understanding that the Quincy store continues to be profitable, has a dedicated and passionate store manager with decades of experience and serves a growing population. Quincy, in addition to being a retail hub, has a continually expanding health care industry. Blessing Health System, with over 3,000 employees, just this week opened an over $70 million dollar patient care addition less than a mile from the Jos. A. Bank store. Quincy Medical Group, with over 1,200 employees continues to add professional staff and capabilities, and is located just 5 blocks from the store. Executives and management from a broad variety of manufacturing and related industries continue to add professional talent, and many are current clients with both corporate and personal accounts. 

A group of concerned community leaders has come together to do everything it can to keep Jos. A. Bank in Quincy. It is my understanding that there are options to retain a profitable Jos. A. Bank in Quincy as either a franchise or company store. I believe there are also opportunities for its growth in both the short and long-term. Please consider making your business decision to keep Jos. A. Bank open in Quincy, Illinois, based on these opportunities.  

Kind regards,
