Today’s Feature Friday spotlights one of our retail partners in Illinois: The Brass Horn. George Streckfuss opened The Brass Horn in the Brettwood Village shopping center in Decatur in 1990. The store moved to its current downtown location three years later. In 2005, George partnered with Ryan Spurlock, who began working at the store as a teenager in the 90’s. The Brass Horn offers a wide range of menswear – from tailored clothing to popular sportswear. Now in its 25th year of business, the store has become the premiere destination for menswear in Decatur.
Founded in 1823, Decatur is located in central Illinois. The city is located within three hours of Chicago and St. Louis. Decatur was a former home of President Abraham Lincoln and the site of his first political speech. Decatur was also the original home of the NFL’s Chicago Bears.
