Annie’s Ace Hardware Celebrates Year Anniversary
It hardly seems possible that Annie’s Ace Hardware (1240 Upshur Street, NW) has been open a full year. I feel like it’s only been a few month since I first posted the news that the Park View/Petworth/Columbia Heights area would be getting a new, full service hardware store. Yet, a year it’s been … and a great year at that.
On Saturday, February 9th, Annie’s celebrated their year anniversary with cake and coffee for customers. I understand Ward 4 Councilmember Muriel Bowser was scheduled to stop by as well, but I needed to leave prior to her arrival. There was also a raffle customers could participate in, but I don’t know the outcome of that (perhaps someone from Annie’s can help me out here). I thought it was a very nice way for Annie’s to celebrate their anniversary and in keeping with the store’s focus on providing great customer service and giving back to the community.
Also in that spirit, I continue to notice new services and products every time I go to Annie’s. On this last visit, I read that they will begin a knife sharpening service this week and they now carry Edison style light bulbs — and not just in 40 watts, but also 20 and 60 watts (see image below for Edison selection).
So, Happy Anniversary Annie’s! It’s been a great year with a great area business!Commerce and Businesses comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
