NORTH KINGSTOWNâWith the threat of closure hanging close, Wilsonâs of Wickford was able to scrape together the $148,000 needed to pay for its fall inventory, among other necessities. Operator James Wilson was pleasantly taken aback by the communityâs response in helping support the 70 year-old clothier.
âIt is awesome and humbling, and we are very grateful,â said Wilson on Tuesday. âThe community and the support was so strong and so inspiring. We probably had somewhere between 900 to 1000 people make contributions online and here in the store.â
