Goner Message Board / Memphis / Murphys buys Tri State Vacuum
Posted: Nov 10, 2007 8:49 pm
The gorillas are retiring.

Their master, John Hardin, who with his wife Penny owns the gorillas' home, Tri-State Vacuum Cleaner Co., plans to close the business Friday, although it is still profitable.

Fuckin A.

from the Commercial Appeal

The Hardins will sell the building at 1583 Madison to their neighbor, Benny Carter, owner of Murphy's, which has plans to expand.

"I've become obsolete," Hardin said. "Vacuum cleaners have become so cheap that rather than bring them in for me to fix (his main business), people chunk them out on the side of the road and go to Wal-Mart to get a cheap one."

As for the gorillas -- one outside, one inside the store -- Hardin's not sure what he'll do with them.

It'd look great outside the Goner store...with a Goner t shirt and hat and coffee mug in it's hand.
