ALEXANDRIA, VA-After nearly six months of ongoing construction and renovations, Old Town Ace Hardware has completed of the makeover of their store on 809 S Washington Street. To celebrate, the location is hosting a Grand Re-Opening Sale Oct. 13-15, with a party on Saturday, Oct. 14 from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
“The community will like how much this expansion really opens up the store,” says Store Manager AiLeng Miller. “Sure, construction has been a challenge, but our customers have been great about it. This is a happy place; we have fun. I try to make sure everyone who’s here wants to be here.”
The 5,000 square foot expansion of the original 8,000 square foot location takes over two formerly empty storefronts. The acquisition facilitated the addition of a new Benjamin Moore paint store, offering customers an improved shopping experience and product assortment. Customers will notice refinished floors, renovated aisles, and expanded lawn and garden departments, including more outdoor power equipment, the addition of Stihl power tools, outdoor power equipment, and maintenance services, and an expanded selection of grills from brands like Weber, Yeti, Gozney, Ooni, Blackstone, Traeger, and Big Green Egg.
During the Grand Re-Opening Sale, customers are invited to shop 20% off all paint purchases, including their new line of Magnolia Home paint, Ace paint brands, and Benjamin Moore paints*, a quality brand exclusively sold at local retailers. The sale also features deep discounts on select spray paints, premixed paints, sundries and paint accessories.
In addition to the sale, show up on Saturday Oct. 14 for the Grand Reopening Party, featuring vendor demos from Stihl, Big Green Egg, Gozney, Jonathan Green, Rustoleum, and others; giveaways; cake; and a live DJ.
