Suffolk Times: It started as East End Supply Company in the 1950s. It became Lewis Marine in 1988. But on Friday, it will be gone.

Lewis Marine, the Greenport Village supply company, will be closing its doors Friday at noon, sending some 26 employees out of work.

“It’s all some of us have been doing all our lives,” said general manager Bart Ruroede. “These guys are family.”

The decision to close the store was made by Lewis Marine’s parent company in Florida, Mr. Ruroede said.
