Closed Wednesday

This is the first, biggest sign you see on the front door of a store at 35th and Woodland, kitty-corner from which are three Habitat houses I worked on a lot in the spring and summer of 2000.

When the proprietor of this little hardware store saw me taking this photo and accosted me, I finally told him I was with Habitat, and then he felt OK.  It's been my experience that a lot of people living in Habitat neighborhoods, people I would want to live next to, are pleased that Habitat is there.  But he never did ask me why I wanted a photograph of his sign.

This is also the intersection where a young child was killed by a speeding motorist a couple years later.  It is astonishing to me how fast some people drive through this neighborhood, especially since there are so many children and so much on-street parking.  It's not only criminally irresponsible, it's murderously dangerous.

 


 

Update of September 2005: Apparently the sign in front of the building wasn't clear enough, so this one was added on the side.  It says, "Open Monday to through to Saturday.  Closed to Wednesday."  As to whether they're open on Sunday, you just have to guess.

The "ON" with the arrow pointing at Wednesday is beyond me.

Update of June 2007: This little store is now closed and boarded up.  I think what happened is people got so confused about when it was open that they gave up trying to figure it out and went down the road to Home Depot.
