Nappanee hardware store closing doors after 55 years


Martin Hardware is preparing to close it's doors after 55 years of business in Nappanee.  The owner of the store, Dennis Martin, is ready to retire.  "It's time for me to turn another chapter in my life, spend some time with my wife," Martin said, "do a little traveling, some fishing." 

The local hardware is known for it's hometown service.  From getting a conditioned and fitted ball glove, to customized table tennis paddles, they specialize in service you don't get at larger stores. 

Coffee mugs even hang on the wall, where regulars come in to start their mornings and, as Dennis says, "to solve the problems of the world." 

The store will be open for the next eight weeks.  It is located at 151 E. Market St. in downtown Nappanee.
