Last chance to shop at The Andersons

TOLEDO, OH (WTOL) - Time is running out to shop at The Andersons.

The locations in both Maumee and Toledo are set to close June 3.

The company has laid off more than 500 people since announcing they would close the doors to the stores in January.

For loyal customers, many walked out of the store knowing it was their last time shopping at the Andersons.

"And I just wanted them to know to say thank you and to bring some happiness into their lives," said customer Robert Moyers.

Although a sad time, representatives said that the family and the company will continue to serve the community.

"We are extremely grateful to all the loyal customers and community who have continued to support us for 65 plus years. It's been quite a run for our company to continue this retail business, and it is a sad day for us to be closing at this time,: said Julie Payeff of The Andersons.

The store is open until 5 p.m.

For those who do plan on heading to the Andersons, they say most of what is left is fixtures and equipment. But there was still a little bit of gold to be found.

"We just had a gentleman buy a lawn and garden sign," Payeff said. "He said he shopped here so long, he feels as though this is his way of the sendoff."

The family-owned company will however continue its grain, ethanol and rail businesses.
