Harnacks completely scraped
I went by the former home of Harnacks Furniture at 2008 S. Broadway in Rochester Tuesday and I saw that the demolition is complete. Where the well-known family furniture store once stood is now smooth dirt ready for a new strip mall.
Now the Harnack brothers – Tom and Gene Harnack – won't have to field any more questions about the building. Those guys have been very good to work (for me) with during the transitions. I really have apppreciated that.
After 54 years of being run by the Harnack family, the store sold to to Mike Monk of Chanhanssen in the spring of 2005. Monk started a sell-off od the store in the fall of that year and then closed it.
