Hank Marler, owner of Hank’s Quality Flooring, would ideally like to expand his offerings beyond carpeting and flooring, and believes moving to a larger space would enable him to do so. According to The Post Star, Marler “is in the process of buying the former ABC Restaurant Equipment and Supply building at 28 Elm Street” in Downtown Glens Falls. Hank’s is currently located at 730 Upper Glen Street near Wendy’s.
