A Bennington landmark is closing its doors.

The store manager of Greenberg's confirmed the 65-year-old lumberyard will close at the end of August.

The store put out signs announcing the closing and deep discounts on remaining inventory.

The closure will leave 23 employees will be out of work, but manager Harry Cobb said Leader is offering those displaced employees positions in Brattleboro and New York.

A year ago, the North Adams, Massachusetts, Greenberg's closed.
