Beeles said small businesses are what keeps the country running and expresses concern that big box stores — where he rarely sets foot — are going to control everything in the near future.

He also considers himself a religious man, evidenced not only in conversation but also by the table covered in free religious tracts set up near the store’s cash register.

“I think the Lord has really led me to take the Bible and go out knocking (on doors), getting people in church and stuff,” he said. After the store closes, Beeles said he plans on visiting homes in the area with the possibility of traveling out-of-state to witness his faith to others.

    Though I no longer live in the Salamanca area, I will never forget the many hours I spent wandering through Bear Hollow and all the great treasurers I found and purchased. Over the years, Bear Hollow just seemed to get bigger and better every year. I realize that as time goes by, things change. However, it still makes me a bit sad to learn that it will be closing. Good luck to all those who were involved in this wonderful enterprise and thanks for all the great memories.
