Ace Hardware, based in Woodland, CA, recently hosted its grand opening ceremony at its new location here. Previously, the store was home to Orchard Supply Hardware but was purchased, rebranded and remodeled and was officially reopened in May, according to the Daily Democrat, a local news outlet.
According to Ace, the store’s inventory has been expanded from specifically hardware, electrical supplies and plumbing tools to many of the additional categories carried across the nation by Ace stores, including garden center, a full backyard barbecue department, outdoor power equipment department, Hallmark Gold Crown department, a “paint studio,” pet supplies and kitchen goods. The remodel also included several “shop-within-a-shop” concepts.
Additionally, the company noted that many of the former employees are on hand at the new Ace location, including its store manager.
This opening comes on the heels of the brand’s announcement that it will open 11 stores in California that were previously Orchard Supply Stores.
