They have carried on the tradition of this old store, which got its start in 1946 as Sutton & Kline, striving to provide hardware, animal feed, home goods and home décor, fresh produce and seafood. “We are a unique store with a hometown nostalgic attitude,” she said.

For Jo-Ann, the biggest challenge was learning the hardware business. To balance that, “My biggest triumph has been the success of the home décor products I have brought into the store.”

Born in New Jersey, Letchworth grew up in Virginia Beach. Before Moughons, she had a successful hair salon in Kilmarnock and restaurant in Mathews. She said, “I was born for sales and love our customers.”

“My husband and partner, Mark Letchworth” is a big part of her success, she said.
