I retired from auto glass and sold the business back in 2015 and moved to Florida. I recently went back to Boston to attend some family services and figured I would stop by LOF to say hello to some old friends. I was sad to see the store had closed and another business was moving into the building. That was a good group of guys running that shop, even had a barbecue for my retirement. How long ago did they close? Wish those guys the best of luck.
We all got laid off in September 2017. We were told the company was "restructuring"
I worked in that building and business for close to 30 years. It was a bit of a shock but not really surprising given the way the industry seemed to take a turn. You're right Old Timer,it sure was a group of good guys dedicated to our customers and a very well run warehouse.
Hope all is well with all our former loyal customers! We gave it our best every day but time to move on. I miss my customers a lot but the corporate bureaucracy not so much.
I always heard they rocked at service, but I guess that was all fabricated and counter to the top truth. They obviously became quarry for other suppliers. Luckily everyone didn't lose their marbles and the artisans that worked there started with a clean slate.
