Story By: Tierra ThomasStudent Journalism

The Fairfield County Chamber of Commerce recently started a new series called Small Business Tuesday. The goal is to promote different small businesses in Fairfield County. Their first feature was Roof ’s Hardware Store in downtown Ridgeway. The owner, Mr. Dan Roof, is the 6th generation owner of the store and is accompanied by his son Daniel Roof--the 7th generation. The new store was built in 1901 but the building beside it is the original one, which was was built around 1840.

The store offers a wide variety of products and hardware, from propane to wash boards. Mr. Roof, with a welcoming smile expresses, “If we don't have it, you probably don’t need it,” and he encourages everyone to stop by!
