Kootenai County's locally owned and operated mini chain of Ace Hardware stores is growing. Following upon recent successes at their stores in Post Falls and Coeur d' Alene, Seright's Ace Hardware is now planning a new third location in Rathdrum.
The business plans to break ground on a new building for their store sometime within the next couple of weeks. The current scheduled opening should be during the first quarter of 2016, at their site at 14236 N. HWY 41 on the south side of Rathdrum.
The new ACE Hardware store will be about 18,000 square feet and feature all of the traditional hardware brands common in ACE stores such as STIHL , Craftsman , Valspar and more. In addition to the tool and hardware departments, this new ACE store will have a outdoor garden center. The new store will create some new local jobs, with 10-12 new employees to be hired within their first year of business.
In addition to the growth of Seright's ACE Hardware, the business was also recently named the 2015 Family-Owned Business of the Year by the US Small Business Administration , Seattle District Office.
