Local hardware store to close after 99 years
By Claire Giesige
MARIA STEIN - Just shy of a century old, a longtime family business is closing up shop.
Gagel Hardware will be closing by June 30. Owner Tom Gagel, the grandson of original owner, said the decision was made after the store was unable to turn a profit for the past several years. Citing competition from big box stores moving into the area, among other reasons, Gagel will close the business in its 99th year. [More]
