The end of an era

All American Home Center

After more than 50 years in business, All American Home Center is going out of business.

All American Home CenterThis family-owned home improvement store has been a favorite of mine for years. When you don't know how to do a home repair, you can always find someone in the plumbing (or electrical, or hardware, or garden...) department to help you out. When Home Depot opened a store nearby a few years back, we worried that maybe All American wouldn't last. But it did, with competitive prices, and all the while maintaining that high level of service.

The liquidation sale (10% to 30% off of everything) started yesterday. It feels a bit vulture-ish to rush over, but according to the Downey Patriot, owner Tamar Kane said in a statement, “Our customers have shown us great loyalty for decades and we hope they take advantage of these incredible savings on home improvement supplies.”

I'm going to miss this store!
