Report: Fischer Hardware in Virginia will close

BY HBSDealer Staff

A small-town Virginia hardware store that is involved in a lawsuit with its co-op will close Friday, according to a report in the Washington Post.

Last week, a court ruled that a lawsuit brought by Fischer Hardware’s owners, Roy and Pattie Ewers, against Ace Hardware can proceed. The article reports that the Springfield, Va., store’s bank ordered the store closed until a clearer financial picture emerges.

Paul Ryan to appear at Virginia hardware store

BY Brae Canlen

Vice presidential candidate Paul Ryan (R-Wisconsin) will make a campaign stop at Northwest Hardware, a True Value dealer in Roanoke, Va., on Aug. 22 at 8:30 a.m.

Walter Vance, president of Northwest Hardware, said he got a phone call Sunday from the Mitt Romney campaign asking if they could stage an event at his Brambleton Road location on Wednesday. “We were honored and excited,” said Vance. U.S. Secret Service agents and campaign workers swept through the store on Monday. “Our biggest thing was to stay out of their way,” Vance said.

Ryan will give a speech at 9:15 a.m. Northwest Hardware is a chain of six stores in central Virginia, with a seventh under construction. Virginia is considered to be one of the most decisive states in the battle for the next president.
