A few of us gathered at The Tobacco Hut on Black Friday today. I won't be in tomorrow but decided to update everyone on what is happening with the Hut.
Lou made it official today - if a buyer for the store does not come forward by Saturday, Dec 1st, he will begin the process of closing the store. Lou and his daughter are working on bringing Dotty home and to do that, Lou has to be out from under the store. He simply can't maintain the shop, even with abbreviated hours, and take care of his number one priority, his wife.
If you know of anyone who wants to take over such a business, now's the time to act. Lou has brought the asking price down considerably, making it a very attractive turn-key opportunity.
Whether Lou sells the store or begins to close it, let's try and visit the store at least once or twice during these next few weeks. Reconnect with friends, enjoy a cigar, and wish Lou well.
Hope to see you next Saturday!
