Ace Hardware could open in July

By on January 25, 2014

SUGAR GROVE—The Sugar Grove Village Board on Tuesday authorized an Economic Development Agreement and approved an Inducement agreement that facilitates the location of the proposed Ace Hardware store scheduled to open later this year in Sugar Grove.

Mark Driscoll, president and CEO at DriBar Ace, LLC, was present at the Village Board meeting and gave the board an update on the location’s progress. Driscoll also discussed the store’s plan to open in the summer.

“July 1 would be the best case if we are able to start construction in March, but each week that construction is pushed out, we will have to delay our opening,” Driscoll said to the board.

Driscoll also noted that the company plans on selecting a general contractor in February, and will close on the property on March 3.

With construction beginning in March or soon thereafter, Ace Hardware hopes to have its Sugar Grove grand opening before Labor Day.

When it opens, the Sugar Grove Ace Hardware location will employ between 15 and 20 people.
