Shuttering The Shed

Local retailer plans to close after more than 40 years in business

(Continued)

"When the girls left they were looking all around and then they looked up at him. He waved."

The men laughed about the story and all the good times they have had working in Anderson.

The Mastersons said they will continue to live locally where they have friends and family.

Saying goodbye to the friends and acquaintances Wayne Masterson has made through his business is one of the things he said he is not looking forward to doing.

"That will be the hardest part," he said. "I can't thank them or the city of Anderson enough for their loyalty and friendliness."

Wayne Masterson said he did have advice for those looking to opening their own retail business.

"Don't do it unless you love it," he said. "Don't do it for a hobby. You have to love it."
