"With all the coverage of the new Target store and the empty storefronts at the Wilson El Stop, I wanted to take a moment to remind/inform your readers about the Ace Hardware just north of Wilson at Clifton and Broadway.
While I'm excited to have a Target within walking distance of home, it's crucial that we continue to support the small, independently owned businesses in Uptown. Every time I go into Ace, I'm greeted by someone asking how they can help. They're quick to assist and I'm usually out the door in less than 5 minutes. When I mentioned this to my neighbor, she didn't even know we had a neighborhood hardware store. I'm guessing she's not the only one.
While Target is great for discount toilet paper and laundry detergent, please keep Ace in mind for those little projects around the house."
