A business doesn’t last over 125 years without providing a quality product several generations in a community can thoroughly enjoy. That’s what Combellack’s has done on Placerville’s Main Street, attracting young and old to shop and enjoy a bit of history in the process. Voters seem to be attracted to the clothing the shop offers, giving it top honors this year for its offering of jeans, outdoor wear, sports coats, sweaters and even tuxedo rentals. The family owned business, which was started in 1898 by William Hill Combellack, and has since been passed down to his son in 1910, grandsons in 1946 and great-granddaughter in 1978, still carries products from companies when he started it all like Len and Pendleton, but blends it with new lines like Kiche, Woolrich and Tommy Bahama.
