Located behind Logan’s Roadhouse on U.S. 280, the infamous hunting and fishing store has been behind Mr. Rogoff’s ownership for 45 years.

“I decided to retire, so we’re going to run a retirement sale, and it’s going to start next Thursday [Nov. 17],” Rogoff said. “And how long it runs? You don’t know with these things.”

Businesses come and go, but the legacy left behind will for many years be remembered; in this case, I am sure 280 residents won’t for get this relic…

Imagine, the business, although transformed from an Army/Navy store downtown into an outdoors store to focus on the demand at hand, has been around since 280 was a two lane road to the beach.
