Zinger Hardware moving to former bookstore
Zinger Hardware of Austin, Texas, will be relocating to a vacant bookstore with an outdoor center where it can build a children’s playground and a butterfly garden, according to an article in the Austin American Statesman.
Michael Ferweda, who started Zinger Hardware with his wife, Katherine Friend in 2002, said the former Bookstop is about the same size -- 12,000 sq. ft. -- but more “shopper friendly.” He plans to hire more employees and add such merchandise as rain barrels, pottery and organic fertilizers.
The Do it Best dealer, also known for its retro furniture and unusual cookware, will have a soft opening around July 1 and a grand opening on Aug. 15.
