Home Hardware hosts grand opening

Just before Christmas 2018, Home Hardware opened its doors in Golden, bringing in tools and resources to help residents with projects, renovations, fixes, hobbies, and more.

On June 13, Home Hardware will host its official grand opening with a 2×4 cutting ceremony at 9 a.m., similar to a ribbon cutting ceremony, said store manager Evan Raycraft. The grand opening will take place over three days, with a free pancake breakfast from 8:30 to 10:30 a.m. on Saturday, June 15, followed by a free barbecue from 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. in support of the Rotary and Interact Cubs of Golden. From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m., there will be kids activities including face painting, balloons, a colouring table, and a guest appearance by Handy Andy, Home Hardware’s official mascot.

There are 10 employees at the Golden location, including Raycraft, but Home Hardware employs up to 100 people between Golden and Invermere, explained Angela Miller, who is a family member helping out the with grand opening planning. Employing local people and supporting the community is important to Home Hardware.

“Golden Home Building Centre supports the local hockey team, they are [hero] sponsors for the Kicking Horse [Culture] and support various non profit organizations,” Angela said.

Al Miller decided to open up the Home Hardware store in Golden, after seeing the need in the community. He has worked for Home Hardware since 1971, and owns the location in Invermere. The stores work closely together to bring in stock when people need it and offer expertise. The Golden Home Hardware team is supported by a sales, support, and delivery team in Invermere.

Check out everything Home Hardware has to offer at the grand opening, and meet the expert team at the Golden Home Building Centre at 909 11th Avenue S., or call 250-344-6980 for more information.

The grand opening flyer will be delivered in the mail, and outlines all of the sales, Raycraft said.
