VERY SAD NEWS! FAMILY FEED STORE – HAROLD’S FEED & PET SUPPLY FORCED INTO TOTAL LIQUIDATION SALE DUE TO EMINENT DOMAIN LAW
Starting Thursday February 13th at 8 AM and as many days as necessary, Harold’s Feed & Pet Supply a family feed store with a wonderful reputation as 4-H, FFA and community supporters is having a total liquidation sale. Cages, trailers, feed, supplies everything even the wooden floorboards must go. The Bill and Rhonda Burnette family who have helped so many families over the years and had hoped to continue doing so by passing the business down generation to generation has to close due to State road expansion issues. There is a misconception that when the State takes a business via eminent domain for a new road or road expansion, the owners are fairly compensated. That is NOT true. Eminent business domain laws are backwards and the State knows this. Rhonda Burnette said, “ No one until they experience it, knows how business eminent domain works. When the State takes a property from a business, if they take less than 100% the State has to pay for, business loss damages (up to 7 years) and what the State considers the property value etc... BUT when the State takes 100% of a business, State Statues state they only have to pay for property value.. that is it. Nothing more.” In the case of Harold’s Feed and Pet Supplies the State deemed it to be a 100% taking. A devastating blow to this small, family business. As Rhonda said, “ The State Statute for business eminent domain is NOT fair.” All they wanted to do was move their business to an existing business location. It should have been an easy thing to do and not ended this way. So, it was with great sadness that Harold’s Feed is having a total liquidation sale starting February 13th at 8 AM 12990 E Dr Martin Luther King Jr Blvd, Dover, FL 33527. Feed, pet supplies, cages, fencing, structures even the building wooden floors must go. They do not know how many days this will take place as the sale will continue until however many days it takes until all is gone. They are asking people to spread the word so there is a good turnout and the pain of closing can be shortened. When you go in for the total liquidation sale – please take a moment and tell them thank you for all they have done for others and let them know they will be missed. Harold’s Feed has been in serving the community since 1972, with the Burnette family being owners the last 23 years. They deserve our respect and love.
