Yakima's Right Pro Hardware closes

Posted: Updated:

YAKIMA--The recession claims another Yakima business.

Right Pro Hardware made their final sales Saturday.  They're closing after 15 years.

Owner Dave McDonnell said business had improved every year since moving to their 40th Avenue location in 2003, but about this time last year sales began plummeting.

They got most of their business from construction projects.

"That really tailed off significantly this year; we weren't able to withstand it."

McDonnell said he is looking forward to some time off after a draining six weeks of closing sales. 

But, soon he and his wife will have to find new jobs.
