BRUNSWICK — A clothing store in downtown Brunswick that’s been in business since 1889 and owned by the same business partners for 41 years has been put on the market.

David Girardin and co-owner John Simonson have begun advertising for a new owner for Pennell’s clothing store on Maine Street.

Girardin tells The Times Record that he’s seen Maine Street transition from a mix of clothing and shoe stores, hardware stores and pharmacies to restaurants and other service-based businesses over the decades. But Pennell’s has weathered the changes, even keeping the same storefront and hardwood floors along the way.

Girardin says he and Simonson are looking to retire and have listed the store with a local broker.
