|In 1949, Robert H. Reny (better known to all as R.H.) opened his first store in Damariscotta, Maine. The first winter was so slow that in order to keep the store open, R.H. had to go door to door around the area selling merchandise out of his old Hudson. That winter he made so many friends that in the spring his new friends came in to shop at the store and the business has been growing ever since! His philosophy was simple, make great buys of quality merchandise and pass these incredible values along at the lowest possible price to our customers! This philosophy has driven our successful business for over 68 years!
