Rocky’s builds new store in Fairhaven, Mass.

Springfield, Mass.-based Rocky’s Ace Hardware, founded in 1926, will open a brand new store in Fairhaven, Mass. 

Construction at the new site will begin immediately, converting a relatively new space in the busy Fairhaven Stop & Shop Plaza into the newest Rocky’s location, expected to be open in September.

The store will be the family-owned chain’s 34th. When open, it will measure 12,500 sq. ft., featuring approximately 10,500 sq. ft. of selling space, plus a 2,000-sq.-ft. garden center. The store will be constructed with Green Technology and features advanced energy-saving lighting to help enhance the shopping experience while saving natural resources.

The store reflects the new concept of “Re-Discover Rocky’s,” with offerings of a traditional hardware store and much more, according to the company. 

“Soon a whole new audience of customers will acquaint themselves with our legendary customer service and enjoy the Rocky’s shopping experience we proudly offer,” said Rocco Falcone, president and CEO.

Craftsman tools, Clark + Kensington and Benjamin Moore paint, pet food and accessories and a complete lawn and garden center will be featured.

“The opening of a new store in Fairhaven strengthens our presence in the southeastern portion of Massachusetts and complements our stores in nearby Fall River and Middletown,” Falcone said.
