Seven years ago Oldham County restaurant manager, Rhonda Martin bought the Pleasureville Hardware Store lock, stock and hardware and moved her family to Pleasureville.
Martin heard of the store’s impending auction from Pleasureville’s Elmer McAlister. Martin had no experience in the business, but a bad case of food service burn-out left her primed for a change.
“Before I bought the store, I’d never even worked in retail,” Martin said. She has been its owner and sole employee ever since.
