Paige Harmon Maston wrote: I loved Heck’s. For those of us who lived in West Portsmouth, it was the easiest-to-get-to discount department store. My mom would say “Let’s run to Heck’s” and it was easy to get in and out. Going to Kmart or Harts was more of a “trip” for those of us on the West end of the county!
