Ace Hardware & Equipment
MECHANICSVILLE, Virginia – The folks at the two-location Ace Hardware & Equipment in the area surrounding Richmond, Virginia identify themselves as a hardware store with an independent power equipment dealership inside. Success as an Elite dealer for Stihl and Cub Cadet products through the years at Ace’s longtime Ashland location, acquired in 2000, prompted serious inquiries about if they could replicate their model at a new location.
Robert Traweek, 59, owner and general manager, and his son, Mike Traweek, 32, store manager, shopped the area for over two years seeking the identical size and floor plan to suit their needs before finding the perfect fit 16 miles south of their Ashland location, in Mechanicsville, and jumped on it immediately.
“You can duplicate an Ace store,” Robert says. “But can you duplicate an Ace store with a substantial power equipment niche to it? We needed a building that was a certain size and that became possible in Mechanicsville.”
