Hard Times Signal End of Veteran Business

Growing up in Plymouth, I remember when Walker-Buzenberg relocated to our city. They moved into a small strip next to what was a Kroger store on Main Street. The store was situated just a few blocks from the cultural center of town, across the street from the old Plymouth High School. This retail strip was in front of the old Daisy Air Rifle facility which has now given way to an upscale housing community.

Plymouth Observer -
Brothers wouldn't compromise in bad times
Dave and Eric Buzenberg said they tried to change with the times, but one aspect they weren't going to compromise was their high quality of customer service.

So, instead of lowering their standards, the pair decided it was time to close Walker-Buzenberg Furniture on Main Street in Plymouth -- a family owned business that's been around metro Detroit for 73 years, the past 28 in Plymouth -- because of hard economic times.

"Going Out of Business" signs were posted Wednesday afternoon, and the doors locked until the liquidation sale begins this week. (more ...)
