Trio Home Center, Ellis, Ks., will close by the end of the month. Glen Keller and Dave McDaniel, co-owners since 1972, sold the property, which will be razed to make room for a Dollar General. The site has housed a lumberyard since 1878.
Shortly after moving out, partners Keller and McDaniel plan to open Trio Hometown Supply just down the street. The new venture won’t offer lumber, drywall or cement, but will sell hardware, paint, sundries and appliances.
