ADRIAN – It’s been a long time since Don’s Lumber & True Value Hardware in Adrian closed for more than a day. 

At least 18 years to be exact. 

That was in 2003, when owner Artie Freytag closed the business for seven days to bury and mourn her husband Don. 

Freytag, though, was compelled to close the doors of her business this week for at least 14 days after one of her employees tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.

“I feel bad for my customers,” said Freytag Tuesday . . .
