Handyman Heaven

The Jungas don't seemed fazed about the Walmart or the ACO Hardware just down the road. They're confident that their store will complement nearby retailers and be a very locally centered business.

Diane plans to work at the store on weekends and keep her job as a teacher at Woodland Meadows Elementary. Asked how she plans to juggle the two jobs, she smiles and says, "I've raised five children."

The Jungas talk about Saline with an almost palpable gratitude. It's been their home for twenty-three years. "We've received so much from this community," says Diane. "Opening the store is a way to give back."

Junga's Ace Hardware, 932 E. Michigan (The Oaks). 944-9862. Mon.-Sat. 8 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. 9 a.m.-5 p.m.    (end of article)
