FOR THE final time, the menswear and tailoring store owned by Kevin Khazen has closed its doors.

An announcement was made last month that Kev Khazen's Menswear & Tailor, which had been trading for 67 years, would close.

A clearance sale has been held since then, with all items marked-down by at least 50 per cent.

As the shop closed this afternoon, shelves were still stacked with plenty of stock, however relatives of Mr Khazen estimate they have been able to clear 75 per cent of the stock they had.

Mr Khazen's daughter, Rose Claridge, said she was taken aback by the outpouring of support from the community not only in the last few weeks, but across her father's lengthy career.

"Kevin and Margie Khazen and family cannot express our gratefulness to everyone in the Dalby community,” Mrs Claridge said.

"(The) support and care has been priceless to us.”

The store was scheduled to close at noon today, however a high volume of customers meant the store remained open well into the afternoon.

It is understood Mr Khazen and his family will decide on what to do with the remaining stock in the coming weeks.
