The business was located on South James Street for years,  moving to the Madison Street location in 2013.

Mike has over 24 years of experience in the business and looks forward to his sons taking over for him in the future. Until then, he continues to look into “new energy and cost efficient systems and technology to help assist customers in meeting their needs.”

Looking Back

The firm of Skoog & Borg was organized in 1910, when partners Charles Skoog and Herman Borg opened a hardware store in the Johnson block of South James Street.

Borg, who had worked for some time previously in the Good-sell (Ackersville) hardware store, was at first the only  partner to devote his full time to the business. Charles, who had been a lumber inspector in the mills and a carpenter by trade, continued on at his carpenter work.

Ten years later in 1920, Charles quit his carpentering to devote his time to the store along with his son Herman Skoog, who in 1919 bought Borg’s interest in the business

In 1916 the stock merchandise was moved into Blumenstock block of South James Street and, in 1932, was moved again to the store at 307 S. James Street. Charles and Herman continued the partnership until it was broken by Herman’s death in 1933.

W.J. Skoog (Pep to his friends) was the youngest brother of Herman, son of Charles, and had grown up in the business, helping at times in the store. While he was young, he also worked as a carrier boy for the Ludington Daily News and was later employed in the mail room of the newspaper for some time. Pep worked with his father and brother in the store from 1922 through 1933 and then for 16 years worked elsewhere.

When his father Charles died in 1948, W.J. took over the hardware business and  devoted his full time to the store.
