Hardware store doubles as cat shelter

BY HBSDEALER Staff

Coast Hardware, a True Value dealer in Willits, Calif., keeps some unusual merchandise in the front of the store: a large cage full of cats, ready for adoption. According to an article in the Willits News, owner Don Buchanan and staff have been helping place animal rescue shelter cats in homes for several years. 

The Northern California hardware store partners with the local chapter of the Humane Society and a group called Anderson Valley Animal Rescue.

Coast Hardware will soon join another program that offers vouchers to people who feed “free-roaming community cats” who need to be spayed or neutered, the article said.

Ace stores open, close in N.C. triad

BY HBSDEALER Staff

An Ace Hardware store in Statesville, N.C., closed suddenly last week, according to the Statesville Record & Landmark, which was unable to reach owner Mike Esposito to discover what happened. 

Signs posted in the store window at the store directed customers to the Cloverdale Plaza shopping center in Winston-Salem. A man doing inventory at the store also told the newspaper the merchandise was being taken to an Ace Hardware store in Winston-Salem.

Currently, Winston-Salem has an Ace Hardware store listed on Robinhood Road. But an article in The Business Journal of Greensboro/Winston Salem reported that a pair of investors have leased a 10,000-sq.-ft. space in the Cloverdale Plaza shopping center and plan to begin construction on an Ace Hardware store next week. A grand opening is scheduled for May.

The new Winston-Salem Ace will be run by the same owners of a 10,000-sq.-ft. store that opened at The Village at North Elm in Greensboro last fall, the report said. Doug Brown will handle day-to-day operations for the stores. Brent Boydston is a silent partner in the venture who helped with site selection.
