Ontario ACE member opens third location

ACE Canada has announced a new location in Arthur, Ont., as owners Doug and Barry Eidt open their third ACE store in early December. Under manager Brent Bowen, the store will include a small farming section alongside pet categories and traditional hardware offerings.

With 4,800 square feet of retail space plus a 500-square-foot warehouse, it will employ 4 full-time staff. Next spring, a section of the parking lot will be transformed into a seasonal garden centre. The Arthur location joins the Eidts’ ACE stores in nearby Mitchell and Exeter. The Mitchell store opened in 2007, when Barry was in his teens.
