  • Slicker,

    The complete, owner operated independent hardware store, small farm town model is probably the last hope for humanity.

    We're lucky to have one of those here.

    Wes has been the Chamber of Commerce "Merchant of the Year," "Man of the Year" and everyone's savior at one time of the other.

    Appears Lords hasn't lost a step in 52 years.

  • Lord's Hardware is the most awesome store I've ever seen. Great store, great people...if it ever goes out of business, it will truly be time to mourn.

  • HerndonHank, I was awe-struck with Lords, in the 1940's. They had been in business for some period of years before that, as I understood, from my Grandfather. Perhaps, 52 years is a bit short,,,82 or 92, perhaps? However many years, the store, and the people are worthy of praise.

    Lords is, was, and will be, the General Store, filling the 'almost' every need of the Homeowner.

    Lord's could make a buck or three, simply having Tours, and charging admission; but they would never do that.

    Lord's, almost as much fun to visit, as enjoying a swim in the sand-pits, just south of McCook (the sand-pits were easier to peddle to, and be home for dinner, on time).

    Good article, Brian.

    Well Said, MrsSmith.
