After six months of internal renovations, Old Town Ace Hardware could be getting an external facelift to match.

Zebra reported that Old Town Ace Hardware spent six months on a 5,000-square-foot expansion of the shop at 809 S. Washington Street, expanding into two adjacent and vacant storefronts. The expansion comes with a new Benjamin Moore paint store, more power tools and more.

Exterior design plans submitted to the Board of Architectural Review show the adjacent storefronts operating as having themed entrances with the corner at 801 S Washington Street featuring a new logo for the Benjamin Moore paint store.

Old Town Ace Hardware is hosting a grand reopening sale from Oct. 13-15 with a celebration on Saturday, Oct. 14, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m., Zebra reported.

The exterior renovation plans are heading to the Board of Architectural Review on Wednesday, Oct. 18.
