    Unhappy Bob's Army Navy to close

    Just saw this on the WJAC News. Its elderly owners are retiring, and are shutting down the store by the end of June. The store is running a store-closing sale already. Sad.

    Bob's Army & Navy to Close in June

    by Douglas Braff, Wednesday, March 23rd 2022


    CLEARFIELD, Pa. (WJAC) A well-known outdoor and hunting business in Clearfield is closing. After serving the community for decades, Bob's Army & Navy is saying "good-bye."

    For 74 years, the name "Bob's Army & Navy" has been known to many across the region and in other parts of the state.

    In June, however, it'll close its doors.

    "It's always been family-owned. My parents started it in 1948. ...They came from Lewistown, PA, and started up the Army & Navy store," Bob Griminger, the store's co-owner, said on Wednesday.

    Griminger and his sister have worked in the store since they were 12 years old. They've owned the store together for four decades.

    "I'm soon to be 70, in June... My sister's gonna be 71 here in another month. We've been working here ever since we were 12 years old."

    "Just thought it was time to retire."

    6 News asked Griminger what he will miss most about the store.

    "The creaking floors... Everybody comments about the creaking floors in this building. It's always been that way," he replied.

    "It's an everyday thing for us, that we've always heard it."

    However, there's something he'll miss even more.

    "But most of all, what I'm gonna miss is our customer base. Our customers have been really good to us over the years.

    Griminger told 6 News the store's final day will be June 26. Until then, there will be a clearance sale.
