University Ace Hardware – Coming Soon!
In March of 2012, David and Carolyn Fichtner along with their children Ilga (17), Ina (17), Michael (15), Jonathan (15) and Anne (15) decided to bring Ace Hardware to the Auburn/Opelika community. The Fichtner’s purchased the old “Yellow” building next to the movie theater and have been working on a complete renovation of the interior, exterior, parking lot and landscaping. The renovations are almost complete and the new store, University Ace Hardware, will be opening on February 12, 2013.
David Fichtner will manage the day to day operations of the store. “We are so excited to be able to open University Ace Hardware. We look forward to being a true hometown hardware store for Auburn/Opelika and the surrounding communities. We live in this community and we love this community and we are excited to meet the demands for a locally owned convenient hardware store and garden center. Our commitment is to provide a diverse array of products and services with the most ‘helpful folks’ around!”
Building Before Renovations
