Rocky’s Ace Hardware will open a new store in Westfield, Mass., during a grand-reopening ceremony May 19.

The new concept store measures 12,000 sq. ft. and is located at the corners of Main and Free Streets. The new store reflects the chain’s “Re-Discover Rocky’s” concept, described by the chain as a hardware store and more.

Rocky’s Ace Hardware got its final approval to build a new store in Westfield, Mass., after resolving issues with the local planning board, according to an article in The Republican. 

The new $2 million store, expected to open later this year, will be built at the rear of an existing Rocky’s location on Main Street. The old facility will be razed to make room for on-site parking, to which the planning board originally objected. Modifications to the project include fencings and plantings to screen the parking lot from public view.

Kleer Lumber now offers Kleer Trimboards with TruEdge, a technology designed to keep boards cleaner for longer periods of time.

More than just a smooth finish, TruEdge is a sealed edge that resists staining from dirt and grime and easily wipes clean if dirt should come in contact with the trimboards, the Westfield, Mass.-based company said.
