Did You Know… where this ladies dress shop was located? Virginia’s Ready to Wear was located at 1207 Second Street, between Stern & Field Clothing and Holcomb’s Pharmacy.


Harold and Virginia Rinker opened their store in 1949. There were many places to purchase Ladies clothing in years past. We had the chains, Penny’s, Montgomery Wards, Anthony’s, Spurgeon’s, Mode O Day, and Fashions on Second, just to name a few.


I remember a time when there was no real need to “go to Des Moines” like we do today. Remember, for there to be businesses to shop in Perry, we all must shop local.
