Ace Hardware coming to East AJ
Ace Hardware will backfill a vacant building on East Andrew Johnson Highway formerly occupied by College Park Automotive, a city official confirmed Tuesday afternoon.
Jay Moore, Morristown’s chief building official, says Ace Hardware has yet to submit building plans, but he’s operating under the assumption the new hardware store will be open for business “relatively quickly.”
Moore says he met with the owners on-site, and they indicated they planned to completely renovate the restrooms and do some modification to the sales floor and interior. Because the business is not changing use, the owners, who Moore says live in Greeneville, will not require approval from the Morristown Regional Planning Commission.
