They've been in business for 71 years and hold some rich Quad Cities history.

For as long as I can remember, Barkan's clothing store has been in downtown Rock Island. I grew up in Rock Island and it was just always there. I loved their selection of clothing and even remembered when Paula Sands on KWQC had a showcase of Barkan's clothing on her show.

Steve and his family served our community faithfully for 71 years and that is worth a big, 'Thank you.' I know Barkan's will be missed and I'm happy for Steve's opportunity to spend time with his family once he retires.
