CLEVELAND – A Cleveland clothing store wants to make sure its customers are comfortable, so it has opened a bar in the middle of its sales floor.
M. Lang Executive Attire owner Mike Lang said he hopes the cash bar will not only help put shoppers in a relaxed mood to buy clothing but also will encourage people to hang out at the shop with their friends.
Lang said when he approached the Ohio Department of Liquor Control, he was told they'd never had anyone request a liquor license for a clothing store.
For now, he and his only sales person do double duty, as the bartenders.
After 20 years of catering to men, the store also added women's apparel recently, along with the bar.
