NORWICH – After providing the Chenango County residents with service for 128 years, Harrington’s Greenhouses, 43 Cortland St., is closing its doors Friday.
Now, owners and brothers George and Gilbert Harrington, who took over the business from their parents on July 1, 1970, can begin enjoying new things in life; like going to Syracuse University basketball games and spending the holidays at home.
“I think all of us can agree. Come Christmas, we can be somewhat normal,” Gilbert Harrington said. “Instead of running all over the place for the public - not that we didn’t enjoy doing it - we will be able to participate in all of the cultural (aspects) of the holidays.”
George Harrington, who has lived in the same house and has worked the same job his entire life, said he especially will enjoy seeing things which he has missed within the last 36 years.
