Pete Krush and his lovely wife will be leaving his/their “baby.” Pete’s Clothing is being passed on to new owners! I met Pete 19 years ago in his store when I was new to Belle Fourche.
I walked in and started visiting with him while browsing to see what he all had. He talked “rough” and “tough.” Tries to offend me, and I thought, “so this is the community I moved into?”
Well over the years I bought shirts, jeans, sport coats, shoes, ties from him and his staff. They always treated me very well, but I never left without some kind of an attempt at an offensive barb. I knew if he didn’t do that he didn’t care much for me or others he did the same to! I found under that crusty outside and speech, Pete had a “soft” heart for kids for the community and for people! He gives if himself, of his resources, and if his heart!
He is known in a wide area as a great businessman and friend. I call him a friend. Good luck to a couple in the next life adventure.
