Edmonds Hardware and Paint announced Friday it will be closing its store by mid-November.

The store has been located at 201 5th Ave. S., Ste 206, in the upper level of Old Milltown, for nearly six years. Last year, it held a gala five-year anniversary celebration featuring celebrity gardener Ciscoe Morris.

According to Edmonds Hardware and Paint owner Tom Paik, the doors will close to the public in mid-November and he will be moving out the building by the end of that month. The store will eventually be relocated to the Crown Hill neighborhood, at 9000 Holman Road N.W. in Seattle, and known as “Home Builders Center” by early next year, Paik said.

The store has started running an inventory reduction sale, with 40 percent off everything except paint and power tools, which are 20 percent off, Paik said.

Paik declined to comment further on the move, and Brian Stewart of Rosen-Harbottle Commercial Real Estate said there is no new tenant yet for the space.

  1. What a pity! It seemed obvious that when ACE came to town there simply was not enough business for two hardware stores in the downtown.


  2. It is a loss. I wish them luck in their new location. Running a small business is not easy. I also wish Ace Hardware well. Local citizens who don’t support local businesses help drive the business out.


  3. I don’t know who the genius is, but I can’t believe how great groceries and hardware under one roof actually works. It’s a model for a new type of franchise.


  4. Really saddened by this news. I really liked the business. I recall commenting when the Ace Hardware was appproved by the city that this shop was doomed. Much better help than at Ace, with better quality stuff. And friendly, very helpful staff. Good luck to the employees, too.


  5. Sad to see them go. They have always been my first choice when needing something from a hardware store. Always friendly and quick to help. Best of luck to all.


  6. I was really hoping they’d survive, here, despite the Ace moving in. Great store with friendly and knowledgeable help. I found the most beautiful shabby chic rose drawer knobs, there. You will be missed! I’ll try to swing by Crown Hill location, sometime.


  7. I will miss this store, always my first stop for advice and supplies for home projects. Such a knowledgeable, pleasant and patient staff! I’m very sorry to see the store leave, but hope that Crown Hill is a great fit.
