Old Hardware Store in Henderson Center
Not sure if it will do any good asking this here because even the wife can't remember and she's lived here her whole life:
I'm trying to remember what hardware store used to be on F Street in Henderson Center back in the late 70s? As I recall it used to be on the west side of F Street between Grotto and Harris Streets and took up 3 or 4 of the current business spaces there. Right about where the Bank of America branch is now.
I was thinking it was Ace Hardware, but maybe not. Connie suggested maybe it was Kress, or some such, but I don't recall a Kress in Henderson Center. Maybe it was?
Reason for wondering is I got to thinking of the first vacuum cleaner I ever had, which I believe I bought there. Problem is, I don't know that Ace Hardware ever sold vacuum cleaners. I also bought a bb gun there. I still have both the gun and the vacuum cleaner.
The vacuum is a Eureka canister vac. Great little machine. I'm wondering if I can still get bags for it. I bought it as a result of my maggot attack emergency back around 78 or 79. Feel free to ask if you want to hear that story.
