grand opening party and bbq Sat.

I won’t try to describe the many changes and additions Kelly, her daughter, Lee, and parents Jack and Karen have made to the store in a relatively short time, both physically and in its inventory, but I assure you it is definitely worth the visit. Kelly bought the store in December from my brother and longtime owner, John Taborski, who now resides in Southern California near his two daughters and grandkids.
