Ace Hardware is announcing a new location in Palmetto that will take the place of Jackson Hardware, which closed in early 2017 at 1118 Eighth Ave. W. in the downtown corridor.

Palmetto city planner Karla Owens said it’s still early in the process to determine a timeline of when the new store will open, noting that a site plan has yet to be submitted, but is expecting one in the near future. Owens said if the city receives the site plan fairly soon, she estimates it will take about three months for Ace to open its doors.
