As the new outdoor sign (center photo – “The shops at 314 Division”) indicates, Women & Kids on Division and Anna’s Closet have company in the Perman Building in downtown Northfield.
Steve and Suzy Taggart are opening Rooms by Tagg 2 (that links to their Facebook page), a furniture and home decor store there that offers Shiply services to move the furniture and other products. And on Thursday Sept. 10, they open for preview week, starting at 9:30 am.
In 1937, Suzy’s great-grandparents, Martin and Mathilda Perman, purchased the building and opened Perman’s Family Apparel, eventually handing the store over to their son, Orval. In 1993, the store closed, but five months later Suzy’s mother opened Kids on Division, a children’s clothing shop, in the same building. Eventually, her mother sold the business, paving the way for Suzy to open her own retail store in the family-owned building.
