In recent days has come word that perhaps the most renowned community hardware store in all of Texas is, imminently, permanently closing.

Let us explore.

Nash True Value, 2023

According to a September 26th report from The-Sun.com, the Nash True Value in Jacksboro, Texas, is permanently shuttering after the owners decided to retire.

As excerpted from the report: The store is on its fourth generation of ownership, according to the Jacksboro Herald-Gazette. William "Lee" Nash opened the hardware store in 1923 before passing on the store to his children. Now, Tammy Malone, Doug Malone, and Holly Berglund - the great-great-grandchildren - have retired.

The store is closing September 28th, when it will also be holding a liquidation sale.
