Published 11:06 am Friday, April 29, 2022

The partnership between Food City and Ace Hardware will result in a new Curt’s Ace Hardware location in Elizabethton.
Food City joined the Ace Hardware family of stores recently and announced plans to launch the new Curt’s Ace Hardware brand this summer.
“We look forward to bringing Curt’s Ace Hardware store locations to the communities where we know there is a need,” said Steven C. Smith, Food City president and chief executive officer. “Given our vast merchandising and marketing experience, I’m confident that our team will do an excellent job managing and operating these locations.”
Food City is evaluating locations in Elizabethton as well as Abingdon, Bristol, Piney Flats, Erwin and Gray, where Food City recently purchased Mize Farm & Garden Supply Co.
“We greatly appreciate the support that our loyal customers have shown us, and we want to leverage our Curt’s Ace Hardware brand to better serve the communities where we already do business,” Smith said.
Ace Hardware is known for its wide variety of products, including Benjamin Moore Paints, Big Green Egg, Trager and Weber barbecue accessories, as well as power tools and equipment, hardware, lawn and garden, and other home improvement supplies.
Headquartered in Abingdon, Virginia, K-Va-T Food Stores (Food City’s parent company) operates 138 retail outlets throughout southeast Kentucky, southwest Virginia, east Tennessee, north Georgia and Alabama.
