Short and Paulk Supply Company of Tifton, Ga., acquired Laing Hardware in Dawson, Ga.
Laing Hardware was opened in 1983, by Jack Laing, as a division of Laing Implement Company.
Short and Paulk has closed the store for approximately three weeks to remodel and re-merchandise the location. The retailer said it hopes to be re-opened for business in Dawson in early March. It plans on holding a grand opening in April.
