COAKLEY'S MAKES SOME CHANGES

Coakley's recently updated their name and sign, but remains the same wonderful business in our community.

As a locally owned business, we at Coakley Home and Hardware depend on our community to support us. We feel it is important for us to return that support through the support of local causes and charities.

We support our community through service to the local Chamber of Commerce, and through sponsorships of other worthwhile causes such as the Children’s Miracle Network, school, youth and church activities and programs, just to name a few.
Send us your news! Send detailed information to d irector@slareachamber.org

We are here to promote you!
