Larry Tilleskjor, a 37-year veteran of apparel retailing and a top merchant at Maurices, died Jan. 16 at his home in Duluth, Minn., of cancer, according to a company spokeswoman. He was 58.
Tilleskjor was considered a mentor to many aspiring buyers and merchants at Maurices, a 550-unit Duluth chain that was purchased by Dress Barn Inc. two years ago. The company said he had a strong record of results that spanned decades.
