GALVESTON, Texas -- Standing down: Fans of military surplus store Col. Bubbie’s Strand Surplus Senter should prepare for a final salute. After 42 years, the world-renowned shop, 2202 Strand in the island’s downtown, likely will close at summer’s end.

Meyer and Suzie Reiswerg opened Col. Bubbie’s in 1972. Suzie Reiswerg said it was time for her to retire.

“Meyer died five years ago, and this was his baby,” Reiswerg said. “It’s sad; this is an institution. But I’ve been doing this for 42 years, and I’m ready to retire.”
