Morris D. Larned has purchased the H.L. Switzer hardware store at 310 South State street and will take possession next week. The store will be closed the remainder of this week for an inventory.
Mr. Larned, who was been a resident of Ann Arbor for 25 years, was for 18 years connected with the Fischer Hardware company, but sold his interest in that concern last summer. Since that time he has been engaged in real estate and insurance business with George H. Fischer.
Mr. Switzer, who has been in business here the last eight years, succeeded D.A. Killins, who established the business in 1910. Mr. Switzer will return to Mt. Clemens, his former home.
