BISMARCK (KFYR-TV) A Bismarck hardware store is preparing to open a second location.
Jeff Hinz, who owns Ace Hardware on South 7th Street, is building a new store on the corner of State Street and 43rd Avenue.
The 30,000-square-foot store will be twice the size of the other one, and Hinz says the city's growth made it necessary.
"There's a north bismarck, there's a south Bismarck, we have two towns here, and hardware, just like groceries, is a neighborhood business," Hinz says. "People are going to buy around and we truly believe with the growth of Bismarck there needs to be a good hardware store up in that part of town."
Hinz says he hopes to open the new store by summer.
