Last days for Allied Hardware on 2nd Avenue
The family-run business is wrapping it up here at 59 Second Ave. between East Third Street and East Fourth Street after closing sales these past few weeks.
EVG reader Danielle Baskin stopped by the store yesterday, and learned that the owners have to turn over their keys to landlord Icon Realty on Friday. An auctioneer is coming by later today to take things in bulk, so there might not be too much left.
And a few of the items on the shelf look as if they have been here as long as the store has these past 30-plus years…
Danielle also notes that the owners have sold the 33-year-old front signage — for $100…
And the sign came down last evening...

Apparently there's also a second Allied sign that lights up that is also for sale, though there aren't any bids yet.
The hardware store had apparently been on a month-to-month lease with the previous owner. Icon, who bought the building earlier this year, is now asking $26,000 for the space.
