MASON CITY – A business that has called downtown Mason City home for decades will soon be no more.

Marshall & Swift, in business since 1912, confirmed today that a “third party” is negotiating to take control of the business. The fate of dozens of employees was not known.

A person who answered the phone at Marshall & Swift said that the business could be closed by April as negotiations are on-going.

According to its website, Marshall & Swift offers “hometown service to meet your needs today and for the next 100 years.”

Several customers of the business expressed dismay at the news, saying “Where will I do my dry cleaning?”

Another Mason City man noted that this is just the latest announcement by a Mason City business that is it time to close up.

“Holcim Cement, K-mart, Marshall and Swift, the list continues and will continue, he said.”

Another man noted: “Look at all the empty storefronts in town.  The mall is a goner.  Used car lots on every corner.  What has the mayor and city council done to us?”
