POTSDAM – Vince O’Brien has closed his O’Brien’s Flooring Center in the Aubuchon Mall, 63 Market St., and moved remaining stock to the St. Lawrence Centre mall in Massena, where he is operating a store now.

"It was still a good business, and I might be back in Potsdam," O'Brien said.

O'Brien said he had to take a fresh look at things when his Center Street, Massena store and its inventory were smoke-damaged in a fire in January.

"I had to come here," O'Brien said from his mall location, "and I decided to just consolidate it all here for now."

O'Brien opened the Potsdam store in July 2007.
