Default DeLong Sportswear

Back in the 80's my family used to go there every summer to load up on sportswear for the year. Is it still there?

Unfortunately it no longer exists! It was a great place to purchase items for gifts as well as self. I especially miss the Duckster golf shirts. I still have some that date back to about 10-12 years ago.

DeLong Sportswear is still here and active. I deal with them on a daily basis as an account rep. They only have certian day that they allow customers to buy products instead of businesses though. The list it in the paper about once a month.

I'm sorry my reply was misleading. I meant that the "store" located downtown no longer exists. It was open daily for the public to purchase items. The actual company is still operating.

I thought DeLong's closed in Grinnell. There are For Sale signs at all there facilities. If they are still in business, where are they at? And where can you buy their products?

They're going out of business. I believe they're doing another sale this weekend - they want to get rid of all their inventory.
