Greg McPhee is closing the doors of Utrunga Hardware for last time on Saturday.Urunga will be left without a hardware store when Greg McPhee closes the door at Thrifty Link Hardware this Saturday (June 30).
“I made a decision at Christmas that if the business was not sold by the end of June, I would close down regardless,” Mr McPhee said. “I couldn’t find a buyer, so we are finishing up at the close of business on Saturday.”
“I’ve been here for eleven-and-a-half years,” he said, “and the last 12 months have been very quiet.”
“It’s a pity for the town, but I can’t blame anyone for not buying a business in the current economic climate.”
At this stage, the owners don’t have another business confirmed for the Bonville Street premises.
