Davis Ace adding store, expanding pet department

By
June 6, 2012 |

Davis Ace Hardware has some big news. It is opening a second hardware store in Davis in Anderson Plaza, the shopping center at West Covell Boulevard and Anderson Road.

According to Executive Coordinator Carol MacDonald, the 3,500 square-foot neighborhood store will be called Aggie Ace and will carry core hardware products. She said to expect a soft opening in mig-August and a grand opening in September. The space was last occupied by 49er Video.

“As we are celebrating 90 years in business at the main location at what many people in town still refer to ‘Davis Lumber and Hardware,’ we are excited to welcome this new addition to the family,” she said.

Jennifer Anderson, president of Davis Ace, is kin to the namesake for Anderson Road and owner of Anderson Plaza.

Meanwhile, some expansion is under way at Davis Ace. The pet department, on the Fourth Street side of its Ace Garden & Pet store, is being remodeled. Starting Thursday, June 7, a temporary store will open across from the Rock Yard, at 912 Fifth St., Suite 300 (in the alley between Fifth and Fourth streets).  It will be open daily until 6 p.m. Fish, reptile and bird supplies will stay in the current pet department during the makeover. The transition will take six to eight weeks, MacDonald said.
