    So as I write this we are finishing up our plans on re-opening both buildings after the COVID-19 crisis. Things will be different for a while. Let me update you on what we know now, and remember this could change as the month and weeks progress.

    Again, sorry for being late, but we have had lots of distractions around the stove!  You’ll see in a separate article, we have seniors graduating within the Crane’s Store family.  And then of course Shanellen has been gone with the birth of her and Andrew’s son Charlie!  Born Charles Shelton Sullivan on April 26th.  21 Inches and 7# 11 oz for the statistic minded.  Congrats!!

    As I write this, we have rain once again.  It’s hard to complain about rain when you know come July and August we’ll be begging for it, but a break now and then is nice.  I did get a first mowing in, but the back and forth warm weather, then the rain, means this will be a great grass growing Spring.

    We have been busy in the store re-arranging the hardware aisle.  We have worked on every part of the store since I came in 1995 and this was the last section.  In retail, you want every square foot to be working for you, and this aisle was not.  We had a hand made table that was around 15 foot long with an old showcase with broken glass and old boxes stacked on top of it.

    Around the store, we are finishing up placing Fall/Winter 2021 orders and working on the new Spring clothing that is coming in. I know, it’s hard to think about Spring with cold weather upon us. We are starting to put out some short sleeve items, but we still have a good selection of insulated bibs and jackets.

    Can’t believe how long this year has seemed to be, and how fast it seems to be ending.  We are happy that as of now, we are all keeping healthy during this pandemic.  Let’s hope we can make it till the vaccine is available.  We look forward to being able to gather together with friends and family without worry of getting each other sick.

    Again, my apologies for being late.  This year has been a crazy one, and at this time all of our vendors seem to finally be shipping products and we have been busy switching the store over to Fall 2020 clothing.
