It’s been a long time since the offices of Wallace Hardware have seen any updates. I have often jested that if it weren’t for the computers and modern telephones on the desks, one would think they’ve entered a time warp back to 1963. But that is all changing! Gone is the old tile flooring, the shellacked wooden and glass panels, and the `60s-era industrial desks. In its place is a modern office cubical look with carpeted flooring, sit/stand desks, LED lighting, and updated color schemes. The office employees will now enjoy more privacy, better lighting, less noise, and new modern workspaces. Hello, 21st century!

Logan was hired out of Food City in June 2016 and has worked relentlessly with a smile ever since.

And all the while, he’s quick with a joke.
