There's a new kid in the neighborhood. A major national chain is moving in on North Avenue in Grand Junction, and their opening date isn't too far down the road.

After a week of sharing with you which businesses will be closing, it's my sincere pleasure to announce a new business, and for that matter, employer will be opening in Grand Junction before long.

Please welcome Ace Hardware to the plaza at 2401 North Avenue. This the same plaza where you'll find Big Lots, Planet Fitness, and Big 5 Sporting Goods. Before long you'll be able to knock out a ton of shopping, everything from sporting goods to household items, and now hardware, paint, and home improvement supplies, all at one Grand Junction plaza.

I had a chance to speak with an employee, and they mentioned the store is shooting for a Labor Day opening date. Looking at the calendar, Labor Day, September 7, is still a good five and a half weeks down the road. That's okay, I still have a ton of garbage to take care of before I'm ready for my next big home improvement project. Five weeks should be just about right.

Of course with a new location they are going to need to hire new help. There's already a Help Wanted sign in the window.

Ace Hardware already operates a store in Clifton at 569 32 Road. You'll also find a store in Palisade and in Fruita. They must be doing something right. The Clifton store has an almost perfect rating on Google Reviews.

Welcome to the neighborhood, Ace Hardware. The plaza at 28 Road and North Avenue sure has made a rebound. Here's wishing this new store a long and successful run.
