New Hartford Kwik Star to be torn down

NEW HARTFORD (KWWL) -- The New Hartford Kwik Star, damaged in June's flooding, will be torn down Thursday morning.

New Hartford Mayor Gordy Ballhagen tells us Kwik Star originally planned to donate building to the city. But just this week, company officials changed their mind, citing liability concerns.

After the floods, Kwik Star decided not to reopen its New Hartford store, in order to focus on rebuilding a larger facility in Parkersburg, which was destroyed by the tornado.
