Republic’s Meek’s closes, permanently

In a surprise move, Meek’s Lumber and Hardware, U.S. Highway 60 in Republic, closed for good Monday, April 6. Meek’s, under new ownership, has shuttered multiple area stores in recent months including their Mt. Vernon and Greenfield locations. The closure is part of a merger of operations with the Nixa and Kansas Expressway, Springfield, locations.
It has been reported by the company that the handful of remaining store employees will be offered employment at other Meek’s locations.
It was also reported that the future of the building remains unclear, although it will likely be leased or sold.
