Buyer’s Fair Is Closing


Buyer’s Fair is closing. Located in downtown Vermilion at 5359 Liberty Avenue, the unique store has offered fashionable brand name clothing, shoes, jewelry and boating items since 1961. The family has made the decision to retire.

"This business has been a fixture in Vermilion for many years and we all wish them well in retirement," stated Mayor Forthofer at the Vermilion City Council Meeting on Monday, October 7, 2019.

There is exciting news around the corner, however, according to the mayor.

"New occupants are in negotiations to setup business in the former Buyer’s Fair buildings and make a fresh impression on downtown Vermilion," said Mayor Forthofer.

The mayor stated the City of Vermilion Administration stands ready to help in any way possible. Additional details regarding the transition are forthcoming.
