Sneak Peek Inside Petworth’s Annie’s Ace Hardware
On Saturday evening, February 4, Annie’s Ace Hardware owner Anne Stom hosted a small pre-opening preview for her investors and supporters at the store (located at 1240 Upshur, NW). The store, which will not officially open until Tuesday, February 7th, received notice in the Washington Post yesterday.
My initial reaction upon walking into Annie’s last night was WOW! It has a great selection of merchandise and just feels like it’s been there for years. It even smelled like a hardware store — I’m still wondering how Stom pulled that one off.
I believe this store will be a winner right out of the gate. As I walked the aisles and took note of the stock, I couldn’t think of one thing I’ve run to Home Depot for in the last three months that I won’t be able to get at Annie’s!
To give the community both a sense of some of the items they can find at Annie’s and perhaps do a little pre-shopping I’m posting a few photos below and after the jump.Development, Retail comment below, or link to this permanent URL from your own site.
