Downtown Seattle gets its own hardware store

An Ace Hardware store will open in downtown Seattle in the first quarter of 2013, according to an article in the Puget Sound Business Journal.

The 7,500-sq.-ft. store will be located next to a Bed Bath & Beyond and a paid parking lot. Delivery service will be offered for downtown residents.

The new Ace stores will be opened by the Meyers Group of Clinton, Wash., a real estate development firm that owns and operates grocery stores, gas stations and shopping centers. The Meyers Group also operates two True Value hardware stores.
