Hometown hardware store

Dear Editor:I am among the many longtime Downey residents who were so happy to read in the Patriot that we will have a store in the former Vons market site that will help to replace All American Home Center. The three former executives from All American who will be opening the Hometown Hardware and Garden store should be thanked for bringing back to Downey the type of store that was always our first choice in building supplies and garden supplies. I am sure they will train their employees as All American did. They were always informed and helpful. The store was always stocked with well-made products and had a good selection. Welcome back to Downey. We will watch for your opening and we will support you. -- Shirley A. Lawrence, Downey
