The Mills Hardware store is set to close in several weeks after 85 years in business. Current owner Bruce Brigode, who first began working at the store as a teenager 35 years ago says now is a good time to go. "It's time to do it, we prayed on it quite a bit, made sure my employees were taken care of before we completed the decision," Mr. Brigode said.
Customer Nina Dinsmore says she will miss the store when it closes. "This store always has what I need because if you go to Lowe's or Home Depot you have to but the whole package but here you can buy one washer or one screw," Ms. Dinsmore said.
In the remaining weeks of the store being open merchandise is being sold at 40% off the regular price. Once the inventory is sold the store will close. Mills Hardware store first opened in 1928.
