After more than 20 years in the business, Scott Hardy was tired of showing his boats to customers in the rain and snow on Post Road East.
"In the wintertime, we put on a coat, two coats," he said. "They're cold. I'm cold. Their kids are cold. And they don't buy. That's not how a successful car dealer works."
So Hardy began looking for a place to relocate the Boat Locker, the 57-year-old Westport business he purchased in the late-1980s.
"I told my wife I want a showroom," he said. "My customers deserve better. And I didn't want to compromise on the space."
In all the time he was looking, though, he never thought he'd find exactly what he was looking for in Bridgeport.
