Gandy’s Home Hardware was my first errand the day I moved to Kits. It was also my first welcome to the community. Gandy’s has been on West 4th for 65 years, but as surprised customers found out over the weekend, the store is temporarily closed pending financial reassessment. Unfortunately, the closing may turn out to be permanent.
Gandy’s is “working feverishly” to find alternate means to keep the store open, which means new financing, new investors, new ownership or whatever it takes.
Loyal customers have left notes of support on the door. I, for one, really hope they make it. It’s about more than hardware supplies, it’s about a really great team of people who make the Kits community warm and vibrant.
Stay tuned for more news. If you need to get in touch with them it’s:
Gandy’s Home Hardware, 2262 West 4th Ave., (for suggestions/help/questions) 604-733-8014, (for emergencies 604-767-1372) Gandyshomehardware@shaw.ca
