E&H Hardware Group to Purchase Newton Falls Ace Hardware

WOOSTER, Ohio – December 5, 2016

The family-owned E&H Hardware Group is in the process of purchasing the Newton Falls Ace Hardware located at 165 East Broad St., Newton Falls, OH. E&H Hardware will continue to operate the store as an Ace Hardware, serving the Newton Falls community and surrounding areas.

The Newton Falls Ace Hardware was founded in 1973 by brothers John, Eugene, and Richard Kolovich. Originally named ‘Fair Price Center’, the business was purchased outright by Richard in 1977. After 43 successful years, Richard is looking forward to enjoying more time with his family and new puppy. He will also have more time to focus on his other two businesses, Falls Car Wash and RLK Enterprises. “I sincerely appreciate the many years of support from the countless customers of Newton Falls and its surrounding area. The store’s success would not have been possible without the loyal employees that stood by my side”, stated Richard.

The employees of Newton Falls Ace Hardware will be offered the opportunity to work for E&H Hardware Group in the current location when the name changes to E&H Ace Hardware. Additional employees may be hired to fill the void created by the current owner, as well. Job postings may be found on www.indeed.com by searching Ace Hardware.

E&H Ace Hardware will continue to offer a wide selection of lumber products, screen repair, a full line of Craftsman tools, Clark+Kensington and Valspar paints, and propane. Many departments will also be refreshed with updated product selections and brighter lighting for a better shopping experience. Ace Hardware’s free “Ace Rewards” loyalty program will bring expanded savings to customers. Additionally, in-store pick-up will be offered for those customers that prefer the convenience of shopping online.

The hardware will close at 7:00 pm on Friday, January 6th, and reopen at 8:00 am on Monday, January 9th in order to complete the transfer.  Existing “house accounts” are encouraged to complete a new application between now and January 6th in order to be entered into the new computer system and facilitate a smooth transition to E&H Ace Hardware.

Scott Buehler, President & COO of E&H Hardware Group, stated, “We are excited to be entering the Newton Falls community in early 2017 and look forward to providing a hardware destination where customers can count on receiving trusted advice from our knowledgeable employees.”
