Jean Seal – People of Crozet

Jean Seal - Crozet Hardware

Jean Seal, an employee of the Crozet Hardware store for 10 years, was first introduced to Crozet through marriage. Jean says that Crozet has always been a small town where everyone knows everybody, but Crozet is changing. “The older generation made up Crozet, [but] the newcomers are blending in.” To Jean, Crozet feels like home and always has felt like home.

Jean takes pride in her work as an employee of the hardware store. As a very dedicated worker, Jean considers the hardware store to be her own store. Crozet Hardware offers genuine service, “[and that’s] something that most people don’t see anymore.”

Overall, Jean loves the small town and the nice people who inhabit it.

  1. Another email comment from Momsy:

    On another note, last night I sat in Fardowners having dinner. That strip of stores is my favorite. Re: the Hardware store: did you know they sharpen mower blades for some ridiculously low price, then coat the edge with wax so you don’t cut yourself. How civilized. Knowing that the Barnes site will be auctioned next week scares me to death. The whole character of Crozet could be dictated by whatever goes in there. I don’t want to lose my little town to a corporate faux front. Arghhh.

Something to say?
