A long-time Fort Wayne outdoor furniture and equipment retailer is closing.
Dar’s Porch and Patio at 3710 N. Clinton St., at the split with Coldwater Road, is closing after 47 years in business.
In a post on the retailer’s Facebook page, owners Dar and Chris Highlen wrote they took “careful consideration” before deciding to close the business. The Highlens have decided to retire, the post said.
Dar’s will hold a “huge retirement/store closing sale” beginning Thursday with the goal to liquidate every item in the store. “All of our merchandise, store fixtures, furniture and equipment must be sold,” the post said.
