You can still find Hank the golden retriever greeting customers at Lemens Hardware in Luxemburg, though he has a little bit more room to explore as he approaches his sixth birthday. The Lemens family celebrated the grand opening of its new location over the weekend after 70 years at its old home on Main Street. It has taken some time for Lemens Hardware to grow into the former Batten True Value space off of Highway 54, which is about four times larger than the old location. Owner Jim Lemens says it was important to him to keep a local hardware store running strong in Luxemburg.
Lemens hopes with the extra space there will be more opportunities to host customers for different events at the store. As for Hank, he will wait for your next visit at his spot near the front of the store waiting for a friendly pat on the head.
