Did you miss King 5 Seattle’s 11:00 PM news segment shot at City Hardware on July 4?  Consumer Super-hero, Jesse Jones (“Get Jesse”), consulted our resident helpful hardware guy for an opinion about a new product.  Click here to see the video!


On June 25, City Hardware and Ace teamed up with Seattle Central Little League to provide a renovation of their field at 1301 E. Yesler Way.  The project included a $5,000 donation of materials, a full day of volunteer labor and a hand from Ace Hardware’s national spokesperson and Helpful Hardware Man, Lou Manfredini.

About 25 volunteers joined us to clean up the infield and lay 4 tons of new field mix - the same surface the Seattle Mariners use at Safeco Field!  Additional improvements to be made under this project include installation of dugout benches for the players and a storage locker for equipment, as well as new base pads and a pitcher’s rubber.

With help from City Hardware and Ace, Seattle Central’s field will soon be the envy of the league!  See below for some pics from the day!

We’ll be updating this page soon with information about other upcoming events and community news, so stay tuned!
