Simmons Hardware Co — Haley & Lang Pulls Out
For reasons that are not explained beyond “dissatisfaction with the terms of the lease,” Haley & Lang canceled their plans to move into the new building. This raises questions about who owned the property and who actually contracted with FBG, although notices say there was a contract with each company. Changes stemming from the merger/partnership with Dymond may have led to business or leasing situations the produce company did not like.
Haley & Lang would shortly take over a major Omaha, NE fruit wholesaler, change the business name to that firm's, then quickly change the entire operation back to their established name.
