Goldstock’s Sporting Goods in Glenville, NY is closing.

According to The Daily Gazette, liquidation sales started Saturday.

Goldstock’s was founded in downtown Schenectady in 1896 and run by the Goldstock family for more than eight decades. Mike Kausch acquired the business in the mid-eighties and later moved the business to Glenville.

The location had abruptly closed without explanation in August with indications that the store would re-open.

 “After eight, nine months, I’ve contemplated everything,” Andy Kausch, the son of Mike Kausch, told The Daily Gazette. “There’s no way to continue the business the way the economy is structured in 2019.”
