Aegis staff report | January 17, 2014
An Ace Hardware Express will open in early February inside the existing Harvest Fare grocery store in Fallston, at the intersection of Routes 1 and 152. This will be the first store of its kind in the state, but the precedent has already been set in other states such as Texas, where combination hardware and grocery store operations have been successful, according to press release from Harvest Fare. The location of the hardware store is expected to allow customers to avoid heavy Bel Air traffic.

Love, 66, of Bel Air, who owns the store with his wife, Shirley, said he had left the office in the center of the store and locked up about 15 minutes before the lightning struck.

Finding family-friendly DIY projects What are some winter home improvement projects that are family-friendly? What are the projects that are safer for children to participate? Painting is the most family-friendly project out there. And interior painting in the winter is always a great way to spruce things up. Take time to cover and mask areas that you do not want covered in paint, as children will be learning and may spill a bit. I recommend using water-born paints with Low VOCs such as Clark+Kensington.

ELDERSBURG -- Customers walking past a cardboard John Madden into the new Ace Hardware store in Carrolltowne Mall won't see hardware.To the right, they'll see silk flowers, wreaths and ribbons. In the middle aisles, they'll see dog bones and cat boxes. It's not until they look left that they catch sight of the nuts and bolts."We could just as easily have called it Ace Crafts," owner Pete Peterson said.The 4,500-square-foot crafts section is the largest section in the 25,000-square-foot store, which will celebrate its grand opening Wednesday.

In a crumbling old city where so many houses look as if they could use a coat of paint, the arrival of a new neighborhood hardware store is a cause for rejoicing. So when I was walking up Old York Road a few weeks ago and spotted a nuts-and-bolts inventory being moved into a building fronting Homestead Street, I felt as if old Waverly had turned a corner. It's the not-so-little-amenities that make a neighborhood - good grocery stores, a friendly pub, a cozy restaurant. Actually, the Ace Hardware that opened this week is part of a steady Waverly revival.

It wouldn't be a weekend for Jay Swanson if there weren't some tinkering to do around the house. The building engineer from Wauconda, Ill., gets satisfaction from jobs that strike fear in others' hearts. His idea of a good time is resetting a toilet or installing some closet bolts. When Swanson tackles a task, he usually makes a run to a nearby Sears Hardware Store or Ace Hardware. He isn't crazy about either one. The prices strike him as high, the selections aren't huge and the service is just so-so.
