Mystery Solved

I never post more than once in a day, but this afternoon I discovered the answer to my local hardware store going-out-of business story.

You can read about it here.

What a sad story. This family owned company has been in business since the early 1900's. This is the kind of place where you go in an describe your problem and they tell you exactly how to fix it....correctly.

In a world where Home Depot and Menards are owned by huge out of state conglomerates and staffed by (for the most part) hourly employees who know little about how to restore & maintain an old house.....it is such a shame.

Geez, and what about that evil bank? Hopefully there is a white knight out there that will make a timely appearance. This hardware store deserves it.
