Soon after the community learned the family-run Lord's Department Store would be closing next month, the Kellys created the first-ever Lord's t-shirt, the profits from which will go toward a scholarship fund in the name of .
Pre-orders are still being taken for the t-shirts which are expected to arrive next week.
