Everyday people: Albarado 'runs the show' at Bay City Hardware
BAY CITY, Wis. -- Old-fashioned hardware stores filled with nameless doodads and perplexing gadgets are of dwindling generation. The few remaining establishments scattered throughout towns and rural communities often serve as a common place to gather, socialize and, of course, talk tools.
Bay City Hardware fits the model. But perhaps what makes this place unique is not what you buy, but who you buy it from -- store clerk Judy Albarado.
