Adams Morgan is scheduled to get an Ace Hardware store by mid-February, its owner told Borderstan today.
The shop is slated to open at 1704 Columbia Road NW the week of Feb. 15, owner Gina Schaefer said.
The store received its shelving units this morning, and workers are getting ready to fill them with at least 20,000 items in the coming weeks, she said.
Although the 5,000-square-foot Ace will be smaller than Schaefer’s 9,000-square-foot hardware store in Logan Circle, the shop will have the necessary tools to fix a toilet, kill some bugs and even make a margarita, among other tasks, she said.
But locals are out luck if they’re looking to score some snow removal supplies before the shop officially opens.
“Come to another one of our stores for shovels and ice melt,” Schaefer said.
