PINEY FLATS, Tenn. (WJHL) – Piney Flats has a new hardware, lawn and garden equipment destination.
The second Curt’s Ace Hardware cut the ribbon and opened its doors to customers Tuesday morning. The first Curt’s Ace Hardware opened in Bristol, Virginia in July.
Food City joined Ace Hardware’s family in 2022. Since then, the chain has opened new locations.
Steve Smith, President and CEO at Food City, stated that there will be more stores opening in the area within the next few years.
“We know that as time goes on that all these stores will really become very popular,”Smith said. “We look forward to getting our Mize Ace Hardware open down in Gray next, then we’ll move on to Erwin and Elizabethton before the year is over.”
The stores carry the name Curt as a nod to Smith’s grandfather.
