My local hardware store just closed
I used to be able to walk there, and I don't drive. Where will I get:
- Keys made
- Light bulbs
- Gardening supplies
- Paint, brushes, rollers, dropcloths
- Window film
- Nails, screws, fasteners...
I suppose via a four-hour trip minimum, via the bus, to the mall, or a three hour trip, minimum, up the road to what is now the nearest store.
Or, I suppose, Amazon.
It's just a shame. I can't blame the guy ("I don't blame ya" is a well-known Maine saying) since the store was a labor of love, but sheesh... Just one more notch downward for the standard of living, so far as I'm concerned. And we lost the grocery store years ago.
