Family owned E & H Hardware Group is in the process of finalizing details to open a second ACE Hardware store in Canton, Ohio at 6548 Middlebranch Ave. N.E., in May 2015. The store is currently a True Value Hardware, and will be converted it to an Ace Hardware store.

Tom Burke (pictured), current owner and well known businessman, has decided to retire after a 30 year hardware career. Tom started in the hardware business in Green, Ohio in 1985. A few years later in 1987, Tom moved to the Canton location, where he has been located for 28 years.

“I’m reminded of the wonderful employees and supportive customers that have been a part of this business throughout the years,” reminisced Tom Burke. “I will truly miss the daily interaction with employees and customers.”

On the flip side, Tom is looking forward to retirement and enjoying the time he will spend with his children and grandchildren. The current True Value Hardware inventory will be liquidated and the store fixtures will be sold. The liquidation sale will run Tuesday, March 17 through Saturday, April 18, 2015.

In May, the new ACE Hardware store will be updated with interior painting and flooring, new display fixtures, counters, and improved exterior lighting. Departments will be expanded, including; lawn and garden, outdoor power equipment, builder’s hardware, electrical, housewares, and tools. A full service paint department will offer Valspar, Clark & Kensington, and custom color match paints. The plumbing department will feature pipe cutting and threading.  Other services include screen repair, glass cutting, key cutting including automotive chip keys and automotive entry key fobs, propane fill, Bissell carpet Machine rental, full service Uhaul truck rental, and a UPS drop station.

A unique gift department with home style gifts and collectables will be highlighted. The store will feature many name brand products: Wooster Brush, Toro mowers, Craftsman tools and power equipment, Weber grills, GE and Feit LED light bulbs, Scott’s Miracle Grow, Ortho and many more.

Additionally, online shopping will be available through with the opportunity to choose from 70,000 products and free shipping from the store. Online shoppers may also choose to purchase from the store’s current inventory for immediate pick-up.
