Longenecker’s Hardware has donated $600 to the Manheim Athletic Association and $600 to the
Lititz RecCenter from a recent Back-To-School promotion at the store.

Longenecker’s donated 10% of their August receipts of office & school supplies to the two local charities.
The organizations will use the money for children’s athletics and sports programs.

 “Thank you to the community for continuing to shopping local. The community has sustained us for
77 years and that enables us to give back by supporting sports, arts, education and local events,”
states Steven Ober, a co- owner of Longenecker’s.

According to the American Independent Business Alliance, dollars spent at local merchants create
a multiplier effect in the local economy, meaning that from each dollar spent at a local independent
merchant, up to 3.5 times as much wealth is generated in the local economy compared to a dollar
spent at a chain-owned business.

It was wonderful for all us gardners to spend a cold, snowy February morning learning about creating indoor
gardens and ecosystems with terrariums.
Thank you to everyone who attended.

Ladies’ Night 2013 was a huge success! Thank you for your patronage.


We enjoyed our Greenhouse Seminar on making Fairy Gardens in October.


We were all anxious for Spring, and so were our customers.
Our Spring Lawn & Garden Open House was wonderful with gardening displays, door prizes,
grilled sausage by our resident grill master Bill Longenecker, hot popcorn,kiddie fun bags,
seminars, sales, and we were blessed with a nice, sunny day.
A special thank you to Penn State Master Gardeners and our vendor sales reps.


Thanks for making our Ladies’ Night, Christmas in Paris, a big success!
Our employees enjoyed it as much as our customers.


Longenecker’s donated $1,214 to the Manheim Athletic Association and the Lititz recCenter.
This was part of our back-to-school promotion when we donated 10% of all school & office supplies sales during August.
