Closings: Home Hardware / Ambro Supply

Anbro Supply and Home Hardware located on the corner of 41st street and 8th Avenue has permanently closed it's door and the property has been sold. The store was already established when I moved into the neighborhood in 1970. The family owned store was the last decent full service Hardware store along 8th Avenue and a go to place when you needed anything from keys being made to shovels. Another sign that change as well as memories of the past are quickly disappearing. It is not known what the new owners of the property will do on that corner. Soon every last vestige on 8th Avenue that is not Chinese will disappear..
