Yes, the Beacon Wearhouse will be going out of business on Saturday. The decision was a few years in the making. My enjoyment doing business with local people was my deterrent from not closing sooner.
An elderly parent, a new grandson, older grandchildren and the need to pay more attention to my properties, and the need to allow more time to annoy more people - something had to give. Robin Rowback has managed the Beacon for the last six years, knows the business and the customers, and she will be taking over ownership; hence, the sign reading "Under New Management." She has graciously agreed to let me assume my seat on the left side as my office.
So, I will be seen (and heard). I wanted to hang out at True Value, but my son said no. So, the Beacon it is. I have truly enjoyed most of my customers, young and old, big and small. Stories? Have I got stories.
Please frequent the new Beacon Discount, and for now, at the same location. Please remember, in order for small businesses to survive, shop locally. They are your neighbors.
