A year after the Ace Hardware store closed in Old Milltown, downtown Edmonds is getting another hardware store — and it’s at the expense of Richmond Beach.
Our friends at Shoreline Area News reported early Tuesday that Tweedy and Popp Ace Hardware in Richmond Beach is closing its store May 13, and the owners will open a new store in Old Milltown. The new store will not be an Ace store but an independent store — Edmonds Hardware and Paint, Shoreline Area News said.
“The merchandise will be tailored to the needs and requests of the neighborhood rather than by national sales advertising campaigns.”
An unrelated Ace Hardware left Old Milltown when the weight of the paint began to stress the floor. The new Edmonds Hardware and Paint will be in a different part of Old Milltown.
The new store will open at 201 5th Ave. S., Suite 206 on Aug. 1.
