According to a report in the Cincinnati Enquirer, The Klingenberg's Do it Best hardware store in Newport, Ky., has closed.
The store had operated under various owners for 90 years. It was one of five Klingenberg hardware stores opened by five Klingenberg brothers in 1922, according to the newspaper.
The Newport store was most recently owned by Don Hartig, who told the newspaper the store couldn't beat the economic downturn. Klingenberg hardware stores in Erlanger, Fort Thomas and Dayton closed previously. Two stores remain open -- in Covington and Latonia.
