Nancy Snyder Knadler says the days of small, family-run businesses are coming to an end.
It began with the small neighborhood grocery stores and now it's reached the farm supply industry.
As a result, Charles S. Snyder Inc. of Tamaqua, turned over the keys to AG-Industrial Inc.
Effective Sept. 1, a local, 74-year tradition came to an end.
"Your mom-and-pop stores are disappearing, and we're a mom-and-pop store," said Knadler, co-owner and corporate secretary.
