After an 80-year legacy, Seven Corners Hardware in St. Paul will be shutting its doors.
Third-generation owner Bill Walsh, whose father and grandfather previously operated the store, has been running Seven Corners Hardware for the past 28 years but has lived in California for a decade.
"I have growing business interests in California and Nevada that have been requiring more and more of my time, and so traveling back and forth between the Midwest and the West Coast has become increasingly difficult," he said in a news release.
Since 1933, Seven Corners Hardware has attracted a motley crew of shoppers.
"People came in to buy hunting supplies, pots and pans, you name it," Walsh said. "Back then, with our wood floors, 12-foot ceilings and mix of general goods, we were more like an old-fashioned department store than a modern hardware operation."
Seven Corners Hardware is stationed across the street from the Xcel Energy Center and sold the property to a large developer in the area. Tiger Capital Group, LLC will direct the sale of Seven Corners Hardware merchandise inventories and other assets.
