It’s been about two months since H.J. Mohr & Sons Co., Oak Park’s oldest business, ceased operations selling concrete.

Employees of the concrete plant are laid off, but no one has been officially fired from their position, said Tracy Walsh, who works at the factory and is the daughter of Mohr vice president Karen Richards.

Walsh said in a telephone interview that the business still is operating Monday through Friday, but buyers should call ahead and not just show up.

“The doors are locked because we are here upstairs at the office; any of our valuable customers know that,” she said. 

She said the company still has bag goods for sale, such as mortar mix, stucco supplies, bags of different types of stone and supplies for sewer construction and maintenance.

“There are so many things we have in the warehouse,” she said. “We have everything but the Ready Mix concrete.”

Richards told Wednesday Journal in early April that the company is working with a lawyer on the company’s future and could not discuss the situation due to a confidentiality agreement.
