Fam­ily owned hard­ware store to change lo­ca­tions

The Covington News - - FRONT PAGE - XAVIER I. LEWIS news@cov­news.com

May­field Ace Hard­ware will close in its cur­rent lo­ca­tion and re­lo­cate to 2171 Elm Street, North­east on Jan. 2.

The hard­ware store has been lo­cated at 3173, Hwy 278, Cov­ing­ton, in the same shop­ping cen­ter as Kroger for 10 years. The fam­ily busi­ness has been run­ning since 1973 when it was lo­cated on the Cov­ing­ton Square.

While on the Square, May­field’s sold both hard­ware and gifts due to the store’s larger size.

In the store’s fu­ture lo­ca­tion, which will be next to An­tiques and Stuff, size won’t be an is­sue.

Lee said that the new lo­ca­tion wasn’t se­lected at ran­dom, that he has been ey­ing the place for 15years.

“We need more room and the tim­ing on the lease,” May­field said. “[We hope to have a] wider va­ri­ety of prod­ucts, out­door liv­ing.”

May­field said the new store can carry even more prod­uct in its 24,000 square feet, than its cur­rent store of 10,000 square feet.

Among the new items, May­field will carry Carhartt cloth­ing.

“It will help con­nect busi­nesses,” May­field said. “We can help home­own­ers, and ac­com­mo­date peo­ple with trail­ers and golf carts.”
