Ace Dealer Snags Indy Store

Indianapolis area dealer White’s Ace Hardware is back up to three locations with the purchase of Fishers Do it Center, Fishers, In.

Indianapolis area dealer White’s Ace Hardware is back up to three locations with the purchase of Fishers Do it Center, Fishers, In.

Owner Steve White had operated stores in Geist, Carmel and Nora, In., until 2018, when he sold the Nora location to an apartment developer.

Now 70, White at the time considered winding down to prepare for retirement, but he said the opportunity in Fishers wound him back up again. Gray Tweedy, 61, whose family has owned the Do it Center since 1989, wanted to sell so he could retire.

Before reopening as White’s Ace Hardware & Garden Center, the 20,000-sq. ft. Fishers store will undergo a two-month remodel, upgrading areas throughout, adding new brands, expanding parking, and adding a 10,000-sq. ft. garden center.
