CHARLOTTE, N.C. -  For 50 years Faulk Brothers Hardware at 5744 North Tryon in Charlotte has been serving the community with a personal touch that you can't find in a big box hardware store.  Wilson stopped by Faulk Brothers today to help the guys celebrate and go old school style.

Unfortunately the store will have to move to a new location this year due to the new light rail expansion.    They are currently looking for a new building in the same area so that they can continue to serivce the customers that they have always worked with in the northeast Charlotte area.

Faulk Brothers is going to be throwing a big 50th birthday party today beginning around 11am with lots of bar-b-que, vendors and fun.  And of course, lawnmower races.  They even let Wilson take one of the lawnmowers out for a test run.  Luckily Wilson came back to the station with all of his fingers and toes intact.

You can stop in at Faulk Brothers or even check them out on-line at their website faulkbrothers.com.
