COSHOCTON, Ohio, February 27, 2012 — After more than 45 years in business, Finton Equipment says it’s closing the doors of its Coshocton location on March 16.

According to a news release, the closing is due to changing business conditions in the Coshocton market and John Deere's dealership location strategy, which no longer includes the need for a store in the Coshocton area.

The Coshocton business is being absorbed by Finton's Zanesville store that will be sold to JD Equipment of London, Ohio. Zanesville will be JD Equipment's eighth store location in Ohio. Kevin and Kent Finton, along with most of the current staff, will join the Zanesville store.
