Gates, N.Y. - A longtime business in Gates is closing its doors, after 72 years.

Becker's Furniture on Buffalo Road is having a going-out-of business sale, selling everything from couches to chairs to lamps.

The third-generation owner has worked at the store for almost 50 years.

Rick Becker says he decided to close the store to focus on writing full-time.

"I've decided to lose the career with all the heavy lifting," said store owner Rick Becker. "I do remember this place from about the time I was 5 years old and I used to come in here as a kid and work with my grandfather, so I have a lot of deep roots here."

Becker's Furniture is expected to close by the end of the month.
