After 43 years in business in Arab, Harry and Mary Walker are retiring.
In the next month or two, Walker Building Supply, located on U.S. 231 north of town, will close its doors.
Right now, Walker is having a liquidation sale.
“We don’t have a target date for closing,” Harry Walker told the Tribune Monday. “We’ll probably be open another month or two.
“It was a really hard decision, but I think I’m getting old enough to retire,” he laughed.
Walker, who is 69, opened the business in April 1977.
“We built the building and started the business from scratch,” he said.
