Avalon Hodge Podge permanently closing on Labor Day

AVALON — The Avalon Hodge Podge, a bait and tackle shop that recently marked 25 years in business, will be closing at the end of the summer tourism season, its owners announced Monday.

The Ocean Drive shop’s last day will be Sept. 4, owners Tammie and Dave Carbohn said in a statement.

The owners are planning to move to Florida in the fall.

A going-out-of-business sale will begin Aug. 1, the Carbohns said.

Because of its deep roots in the community, the decision was not easy, the Carbohns said.

“After 50 years in the workforce, the time was right,” said Tammie Carbohn.

The sale will last until Labor Day.

“The hardest part is saying goodbye to our customers,” said Tammie Carbohn. “We appreciate their loyalty and patronage these past 25 years. We’ve watched the kids grow up and become parents of their own and start bringing their kids. We’ve built relationships with a lot of businesses in town, providing goods and services to help support their businesses and they in turn have supported us.”
