Main Street Hardware open in downtown Albion

Betsy Harris helps unload the first new merchandise arriving at Main Street Hardware.Main Street Hardware is now the name of the former Albion True Value Hardware store on west Main Street in Albion.
The store, which includes three downtown buildings, was purchased recently by Joan Sallach of Atlanta, GA, from Linda Thewke of Albion.
Remodeling is now underway in the east building (former Hobby House), and plans call for the hardware store to be moved into that building in the future.
The Gray Haired Trout will be moved from its present location into the center building, and a possible additional business will be developed in the west building.
The store is currently being staffed by Vicki Gragert and Linda Thewke, with management by Betsy Harris. It is a Hometown Hardware store, and received its first load of new merchandise last week.
