From a press release
2017-12-15

With the announced closure of Man's Country and the pending sale of the two buildings at 5015-5023 N. Clark St., there have been rumors regarding the future of Full Kit Gear. Full Kit Gear released a statement that said it has a very long lease and anticipates being at 5021-23 N. Clark St. for many years to come.

Having Full Kit Gear come to Chicago and become part of the local community was very important to Chuck Renslow. Ron Ehemann, Chuck Renslow's long-time partner, current owner of the buildings, and Trustee of the Renslow Family Trust stated: "From the time Chuck and I decided to sell the buildings, it was very important to us that FK stay put to serve the community we so love. We negotiated to make sure of that in the sale of the buildings, and the new owners have committed to that as well. Full Kit Gear will remain here, as part of the community, and as part of Chuck's legacy for many years to come."

For further information from Full Kit Gear or Ron Ehemann and the Renslow Family, email info@Fullkitgear.com .
