The Ace Hardware in Newport Plaza, known as Great Lakes Ace, has completed its move to a larger location within the plaza and has officially opened its doors. The move puts them between Planet Fitness and Fresh Thyme Market, and doubles the amount of space the store had in its old location.
While the location is open now, Newport city officials will be on hand Friday, June 25, to do a ceremonial "Chain Cutting" at 10 a.m. to celebrate. The public is invited.
With almost twice the space of its former spot, the store has increased its departments and variety. For summer, they are starting with a wide selection of outdoor grills. They increased capacity for a larger assortment of tools and have added a new section devoted entirely to Carhart Clothing.
Manager Brad Baker also noted that with the additional capacity comes the need to increase the number of employees at the site. He noted that those interested in finding out about careers with Ace can stop in or go to the Great Lakes Ace website.
