My last story posted on May 17, 2012, included a reference to Lakewood Hardware & Paint, Inc. One of our good readers commented, and I quote, “Thank you, Joseph, for another not so subtle plug for another of your favorite businesses.”
While I am not certain if the reader was voicing a compliment or a complaint, I must admit the reader’s observation is accurate. Since moving to Lakewood in 1969, I have always tried to support my favorite local Lakewood businesses.
Lakewood Hardware has earned my loyalty over and over with each contact I have had with the staff over this many years.
This past May 11, 2012, Lakewood Hardware hosted its annual Customer Appreciation breakfast. Carr’s Restaurant catered the meal.
It was fun and I met some nice people.
So, that is what happened at Lakewood Hardware on May 17, 2012.
There is more to my question “What’s happening?”
Check out my second photo showing some construction action on the front of the Lakewood Hardware & Paint, Inc. building.
It caught my attention. I will be back to you with a follow up photo when what ever they are doing is done. It will be a new look.
If you have not been to the store, stop by. Their address is 9020 Lakewood Drive SW, Lakewood, WA 98499. Phone: 253-581-1010. Web: www.lakewood.doitbest.com.
Check it out and tell them Joe sent you.
