Local business Yooper Shirts has a new location in Ishpeming, and they're holding their grand opening Friday. Yooper Shirts started about four years ago and has been located in the Greater Negaunee Ishpeming Chamber of Commerce for the past two years.
They create custom made clothing highlighting the culture of the Upper Peninsula. The owners say they're excited to open up at their new location inside the Pioneer Square building in Ishpeming.
"I love this historical building, I grew up in Ishpeming, I'm an Ishpeming boy, I grew up here I remember coming here when I was little now we're moving into this spot where I have a larger retail space that I think we'll definitely fill and be able to showcase it in a way that's appealing," said Yooper Shirts Owner Jeremy Symons.
The Yooper Shirts grand opening will be Friday from 6 p.m. to 10 p.m. on the first floor of the Pioneer Square building, on Cleveland Avenue.
