WAUKESHA The retail store Home of the Brave supporting veterans has closed in downtown Waukesha.

Bob Flowers opened Home of the Brave at 251 South St. in late 2014. The store space was recently cleared out and the phone number listed for the business rings without being answered. An email to Flowers was not returned, but the website, http://americahomeofthebrave.com, remains active.

The shop featured T-shirts, sweatshirts, hats, flags and other insignia honoring America and various branches of the armed forces. Every product in the store was made in America, and both Flowers and his vendor donated $1 of each sale to the Fisher House, which provides free or low-cost lodging to veterans and military families receiving treatment at military medical centers.
