The Retail Paint store, which also sells a variety of household items such as carpeting, lost its primary product, MAB Paint, when it was bought out last year.
Unable to sell the UAB product, store owners Bob and Margie Bryant elected to close the store, which has been in Margie's family for 57 years.
The store began its lengthy stay in Brazil in 1932 under the ownership of James McCurdy. Upon his death, McCurdy requested that his widow sell the store, and on Oct. 2, 1951, the business was purchased by Robert Dix, who kept the store in McCurdy's name, as well as carrying on many of his business practices.
Upon Dix's death in 2002, his daughter Margie, who was two weeks old at the time of her father's purchase of the store, and husband Bob took over the store.
McCurdy's will be holding its "Going Out Of Business Sale" from now until the day it will close its doors, on Nov.29. It is not yet known what will happen to the building, which is located at 110 W. National Ave., Brazil.
