Bassett brothers save another island business

Posted: Wednesday, December 5, 2012 11:30 pm | Updated: 7:42 am, Wed Dec 19, 2012.

Hardware heroes: The island might have lost another longtime hardware business, were it not for Mark and Keith Bassett, who expect to finalize the acquisition of Village Hardware this month. 

The Bassett brothers are buying Village Hardware from Toby Thoresen and partners, who acquired the business in 1978. Village Hardware, 6627 Stewart Road, sells supplies for lawn and garden, outdoor living, home goods, paint and hardware. It has been in the same place since 1956, surviving the arrival of big-box home improvement stores.
