Jan. 29, 2017 – Slinger, WI – As of 4 p.m. Saturday, Sonny’s Party & Variety in Slinger will have closed for the last time.
Sonny is so thankful to his many customers over the years. The store was completely emptied. Remaining merchandise will be donated to the WELS Bargain Center in Milwaukee.
Sonny said, over the last few weeks people have been sending cards, stopping in or calling to chat and wish him well. Piggly Wiggly sent flowers.
Village Beverage next door asked Sonny to continue to sell flowers like he did outside his store each year.
They’ll buy the flowers and he’ll take care of them and put them on the sidewalk outside the liquor store.
Sonny intends to spend more time volunteering at his church, St. Paul Evangelical Lutheran Church in Slinger.
He’ll also spend more time with his children and grandchildren.
