The Washoe City landmark and source for locally grown food will close by the end of the week. Owner Paul Garofalo recently passed away and the family is putting the property up for sale. That includes the 1500sf store and adjoining home built in 1936. A Washoe Valley landmark and one of the few remaining businesses in Washoe City, the store offered a local source for fresh fruit, produce and other products. Recently we noticed the used car lot in Washoe City has also closed.
