Best to close?

Jill of Crockery Township asked, "Why is the Best Nursery in Nunica closing their doors? They've been around forever."

ANSWER:

Not exactly forever, but Best Nursery has been in business since 1958, said its current owners.

Jim Best said he took over the business from his dad 37 years ago and "it's just time to quit." Jim said he and his wife, Patricia, are looking forward to retirement and plan to continue to live on the property.

"In the summertime, you can't leave," he explained the grind of the nursery business.

The nursery at 125 State Road has a going-out-of-business sale, and Jim said the stock is dwindling but must all be gone so he can shut the doors for good on Oct. 26.

No need to yell, lose the caps. Your comment makes no sense at all, they want to retire and have a right to do so. Actually I think it is wonderful that they were successful enough to be able to retire.

If anything, maybe yell:
"UNWILLING TO PASS THE TORCH TO FUTURE GENERATIONS AND INSTEAD CONTENT TO OCCUPY THE LAND THAT WAS ONCE PRODUCTIVE."

In sincerity, though, I agree with rukidding - great that they had a successful business for so many years, and I would expect that they will continue to enrich their community in retirement.

I do not know them well at all, but from what I do know, the BESTs are very good people. Congratulations on your pending retirement. I wish you the best for being a stable part of our community for so many years.
