From KOLO News Channel 8 (June 9, 2010):
A brand-new hardware store just opened in Reno, but it's not a franchise, and it's not owned by a big corporate giant. Carter Bros. Ace Hardware is the idea of three brothers from Ely, Nevada who felt it was time to bring the neighborhood hardware store back to the neighborhood.
Carter Bros. is located across from the Ponderosa Meat Company on South Virginia Street near Vassar. This type of "mom and pop" hardware store is something we haven't seen in midtown Reno in a very long time.
The building here was built in 1947. It used to be the old Sprouse Reitz department store, before hosting at least on Antique Mall. Now, for three brothers, it's a dream come true.
It's the type of place where the employees know you by name. And when they're done helping you get what you need, they help carry your items out to your car.
