I stopped at Portsmouth's new Ace Hardware store yesterday to check it out and met the Portsmouth Store Manager, Mike Nutini, and the Ace Hardware District Manager, Kevin Ponte. Both were very excited about being open in Portsmouth and invited everyone to come down and check out their new, fully stocked, store. We all wanted a hardware store in Portsmouth and I was saddened to see Handren's depart, but the new Ace store has the advantage of being associated with a large and well known hardware brand. Their prices are competitive and they are associated with several other regional Ace stores (the same owner) so should be able to respond quickly if they don't have something in stock.
Please stop down and say hello to Mike and Kevin and welcome them to Portsmouth.
