Price Stores sold its building for approximately $550,000 in March 2017, according to county property records. Edd Wimsatt, owner of Price Stores, said it was the right time to sell the building to an investor who is interested in revamping and developing downtown Dayton.

The Ellway Group now owns the Price Stores building and at the time of the purchase said they planned to renovate it into a boutique hotel. The Ellway Group also owns or controls 1 million square feet of space in the Fire Blocks District, which is the area bordered by Jefferson and St. Clair streets and Second and Fourth Streets. The group also purchased two buildings near the Cannery Lofts, also along East Third Street.

Price Stores, which has been in business for more than 60 years, will now lease the same space within the building. The business sells suits, tuxedos and other clothing accessories for men.
