Lehman’s Hardware, a 56-year-old store that closed after a Feb. 28 flood, will reopen on March 5, according to a notice on its website.
Located in Kidron, Ohio, an hour south of Cleveland, Lehman’s is comprised of several pre-Civil War era buildings that took on 3 ft. of muddy water when a flash flood swept through the area. Local residents -- the store serves a large Amish population -- helped with the clean-up effort and damage repair.
Lehman’s has posted photos and video footage of the damaged store on its website, along with a invitation to their “massive flood sale,” which runs all month.
“In most cases, the boxes are wet, but the product is undamaged,” said Glenda Lehman Ervine, one of the owners.
