Family store closing after 106 years
Monday, October 10, 2011
One of the fixtures of Taos is about to close its doors.
Eiken’s Food Store and Hardware will close its doors forever on Oct. 21, ending a 106-year family and community tradition.
Ed Eiken, owner and community fixture, said the store was opened in 1905 by Herman and Elizabeth Eiken, his grandparents, in the stone building next to the school.
That building is now home to another relative.
