Levy’s Clothier for Men and Women will celebrate 160 years of business with an anniversary party Thursday, October 29. The celebration will include food by local restaurants, Hattie B’s and Union Common, entertainment by Shelly Fairchild, and a silent auction to benefit the Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.

Levy’s is the oldest family-owned retail store in America, opening its doors in Nashville in 1855 and still run by a descendant of the founder, Zadoc Levy. The store gained a reputation for offering cutting edge fashion from New York to its Southern clients, and continues the tradition today by searching worldwide for the finest fashions, both classic and contemporary.

“Our loyal customers are the reason why Levy’s has been in business this long, so it’s important that we celebrate this accomplishment with them,” said David W. Levy, president of Levy’s, in a statement. “We’re proud to be such a big part of Nashville’s history, and it’s exciting to see the growth and change that has happened throughout the years. Not only is a party in order, but also a time to give back to our community. The Second Harvest Food Bank is a meaningful organization to the Levy family.”
