Local shop owner donates all Tux suit sales to relief efforts in Turkey

WALPOLE. Mass — In our Positively Massachusetts segment, we’ll introduce you to John Ricci who runs Delux Tux in Walpole.

His store is about 5,300 miles from where the earthquake struck in Turkey, but that’s not stopping him from trying to help some of the victims.

The store “is far from Turkey, nevertheless, people are people, and when people need help, if there’s something we can do , we try to step forward,” Ricci said. “I don’t care if you’re five miles away or 5000 miles away.”

For the next several weeks, anyone who rents a suit or tux will donate money to relief efforts instead of paying John.
