NEW YORK (AP) A furniture store has returned to the city after nearly 50 years in New York after decades of closure.
Barn Door Hardware reopened to the public Monday with a new look and a brand new sign.
It will open again later this month with a full staff.
Barn door hardware is a small hardware store that offers a full line of furniture and accessories, including furniture, lamps, lighting fixtures, tables, cabinets, appliances, dressers, and more.
The store’s new owners said they had been out of business for years, so it was a good time to bring it back to the neighborhood.
Barn doors were once a common way to store clothes in the 1950s and 60s, but they’ve been hard to find and expensive to repair.
Some people say they prefer to buy their clothes on-site.
