O’Leary Home Hardware owner looking over options
Building donated to seniors housing co-operative
The owner of O’Leary Home Hardware is still considering what the recent donation of the O’Leary Public Hall Company building and property to a Community Seniors Co-operative will mean for its business. The Home Hardware store, owned by Tignish Co-op, occupies the ground floor of the O’Leary Public Hall Company building.
John Martin, interim chairman of the Community Seniors Co-operative, said the co-operative wants to build a seniors complex behind the Home Hardware, on land donated by the Public Hall Company and O’Leary Co-op.
While that would allow for the tenants of the Public Hall Company building, Home Hardware and the Masonic Lodge, to stay where they are, Tignish Co-op manager, Darren McKinnon, said his co-op is still considering its options.
He expects a decision within weeks.
