A crowd of dozens of well wisher came to Glen Park Hardware on on Saturday, July 9 to say good-bye to Hal and Susan Tauber who are retiring after 38 years of supplying the neighborhood with everything from nails to mouse traps to mops.
The party was catered by many neighborhood restaurants. The owners of the building next door, formerly home to Chenery Park restaurant, opened the space up for the event, which spilled out into the sidewalk in the sunny afternoon.
