Bangor True Value hardware locked the doors for the last time Wednesday.
The Hanson family decided to sell when Aubuchon Hardware made an attractive offer.
Dick and Tom Hanson have run the store since 1969, and it’s been in their family since 1914.
The brothers tell TV5 that it’s not easy for them, or their customers, to say goodbye.
Dick says more than two-thirds of his life has been spent at bangor hardware, but he admits it’ll be nice to sleep in, instead of waking up for work.
Aubuchon Hardware is expected to re-open the store on Friday.
