Worsley’s to close in downtown Butler



Butler soon will lose one of its oldest and most recognizable Main Street storefronts.
Worsley’s, 161 N. Main St., will close after 87 years.
“Being a mom and pop business — it’s just too hard to compete,” said Keri Dolan, who owns the store with her mother, Lorraine Worsley, and sister, Cheryl Worsley. “We tried different tactics to get by, but we realized the time has come (to close).”
The store was founded by Dolan’s grandfather, Albert E. Worsley Sr. in 1927. It has grown to include four storefronts in the heart of downtown.
Worsely’s offers a variety of merchandise, including paint supplies, furniture, dolls and collectibles, and teaching supplies.
Dolan doesn’t know when the building will close for good.
“We have not timetable yet,” she said. “It depends on how long it takes to liquidate everything.”
Dolan said the family will sell all its merchandise, as well as the shelving and display cases in side.
“Everything’s for sale,” she said.
Dolan said the family has had a couple prospective buyers inquire about the buildings, which include seven upstairs apartments and a storage area.
