Aubuchon Hardware closes its store in Bangor

An Aubuchon Hardware location in Bangor, Maine, has closed its doors.

A sign on the door of the Aubuchon Hardware store in Bangor explained the team was happy to serve the community. Customers were directed to nearby stores in Brewer and Old Town. 

An article in the Bangor Daily News reported that the location suffered from poor sales despite the chain’s best efforts to keep it going.  

Aubuchon Hardware operates 119 stores in New England and is based in Westminster, Mass. In 2012, the company was recognized by HCN as Retailer of the year during the Golden Hammer Awards ceremony at the National Hardware Show.

The store, formerly a True Value location, was sold to Aubuchon Hardware in 2006.
