Lemens Hardware to move as Batten retires

Lemens Hardware will have a new space to call its own next spring after buying Batten True Value this month. Batten True Value owner Ken Batten is selling his Highway 54 location after 46 years to retire and spend more time with his family. With store closing sales occurring in the coming weeks, Batten says the decision was bittersweet.

Lemens Hardware has been a fixture on Luxemburg’s Main Street for almost 70 years. Third-generation owner Jim Lemens believes in a strong Main Street, but says the opportunity to move to a location with higher visibility and three-times the space for his inventory was too good to pass up.

Lemens is shooting for an April grand opening date for his new location while looking for new renters for the pair of buildings the store currently calls home.
