McCord Son to Join Family Business

According to a local news outlet, Mike McCord didn’t want to pressure his son to consider taking over the family business, McCord’s Do-It Best hardware store. Quite the opposite — he had contemplated auctioning or closing the business in 10 or 15 years, when age would force him to retire.

But it doesn’t look like he’ll have to do that now.

McCord recently brought his son Jake McCord onto the store’s managerial staff after the younger McCord graduated from Purdue’s Krannert School of Management with a bachelor’s degree in accounting.
