A new hardware store, Rexroad Supply Co., is set to open July 1 in Alderson.
Operated by Clint Lunceford, the hardware and supply business will be located in the previous TrueValue store on the Monroe County side of Alderson at the end of the new bridge.
The store will offer paint, plumbing, electrical, hardware, building materials and more. According to a press release, they aim to offer "quality materials at the best prices."
Affiliated with "Do It Best," area officials say the store will fill a gap in local services.
"We are so glad to have a hardware store," said Mayor Travis Copenhaver. "Now we will not have to go 15 miles for nails or other small items while in the middle of a repair project.
"We appreciate Clint and his family opening this business.”
A ribbon cutting ceremony will be July 1 at 11 a.m., and a cookout is set for 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Door prizes and a $500 shopping spree giveaway will occur throughout the week.
Regular business hours will be Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.
