After 40 years in the hardware business and working at the same location (11 years owning it) it was a very, very hard decision to have to close forever.
It was a dream and a pleasure to have served so many loyal people to which I say, thank you for the opportunity.
I gave it my all and put everything I had into it. I hope that support for downtown businesses will grow and not let this happen to anyone else.
Thank you again, Chelsea.
