O’Leary Home Hard­ware owner look­ing over op­tions

Build­ing do­nated to seniors hous­ing co-op­er­a­tive

Journal Pioneer - - PRINCE COUNTY -

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.
