Dear Valued Customers,
It was a rainy Spring in the Adirondacks and although this may have been an inconvenience for my human counterparts, it meant plenty of good things for this bear to eat! Summer is here and I can feel the buzz of excitement in the air!
The rain certainly hasn’t put a damper on all of the wonderful things going on in town! Visitors have been making their way here to enjoy the many activities and events we have to offer. Whether you like shopping, paddling, hiking, the arts, or having fun at the local water park – we’ve got it all!
Personally, I enjoy the peacefulness of the Adirondack Waterways and plan on renting a Stand up Paddleboard (SUP) from Mountain Man Outdoor Supply. It was a longggg winter and it’s time to work out some of the kinks in my muscles by doing SUP yoga with some Adirondack friends on the pond.
On the evening of July Fourth I am looking forward to celebrating with fireworks in Old Forge. There is nothing better! It’s such a rush and all of my fur stands on end hearing the crash and seeing the bright lights for Independence Day! Unlike my K-9 buddies, many of whom work at Old Forge Hardware, fireworks don’t scare me.
To complete the Holiday weekend, I have dusted off my best suit to attend the Rochester Philharmonic in Inlet, NY on July 6th. It’s bound to be a harmonious event! This unique, lake-side concert should not be missed and we hope that you’ll make it part of your visit.
No trip to Old Forge is complete without a stop in to Old Forge Hardware and we hope you’ll check out all of the new items we have to offer in-store. We have everything from current bestsellers, hardware needs, camping/fishing supplies, knitting and notions, Serta mattresses, food, clothing and unique Adirondack gifts!
Please don’t forget to stop in and purchase a raffle ticket to win a $400 gift basket full of goodies from the Old Forge Hardware. Tickets are $5/each and all money raised will be donated to support the local movie theatre in their drive to Go Digital!! The Old Forge Hardware will match the total raffle money up to $1000! This bear loves the Strand movie Theatre! My family has been going to the theatre for many generations, and who doesn’t love a good movie and a bucket of buttery popcorn?
If you aren’t able to make it to our store, don’t forget our Shop Online option at our website – www.oldforgehardware.com. Also, check out our eBay store for some awesome deals – our shop name is ofhadk.
Until next time, remember to paws and enjoy the summer!
