For six decades, Lackey’s was a consistent figure on Main Street, a favorite stop for local children and visitors, selling candies, postcards, books and other sundries.

At the closing, Frank Lackey said that he is pleased to see the building will be restored to nearly its original configuration and will again be an anchor in Stowe.

The new owners have already started retrofitting the 7,900+/- sq. ft. space and look forward to having retail back in the building as quickly as possible.
