What Closed Store Would You Like to See Re-Opened?
I have been reminiscing a little this week with it being the 23rd anniversary of the West Quincy levee break and I got to thinking about making a few stops at Merkels Hardware for batteries and a flashlight and some other things. It got me thinking about the businesses that were open then and are not today, like Merkels.
I loved going there for the things I needed and I miss that it is not open today. If I needed a washer and a bolt I could get it without buying 20 of them in a prepackaged container. Plus, I miss the people that worked there. Of all the stores that are no longer in existence, I probably miss Merkels the most.
What store, now closed, would you like to see come back into business in the area? It should be interesting to see all the store names again. Let me know your favorite.
