The crew at the new Gypsum ACE Hardware store is ready to welcome the public when new business opens its doors Tuesday, Jan. 22.

GYPSUM — Downvalley residents have been closely following the construction progress and highly anticipating the opening day for the new ACE Hardware store located just south of Costco in Gypsum.

On Tuesday, the waiting will finally be over.

The new Gypsum ACE Hardware store will open its doors at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday.

Owners Kay McCarty and Chuck Quenon are referring to Tuesday’s debut as a soft opening. A grand opening at the store will be celebrated later this spring. Daily winter hours at the store will be 7:30 a.m. to 6 p.m.

The 15,000 square-foot store will feature general hardware offerings,  housewares and sporting goods. Additionally, the store will offer utility trailer sales and a propane station. The store will also be a Colorado Parks and Wildlife license sales location.

Opening the business represents a homecoming for siblings McCarty and Quenon. Their family, including their parents Max and Arlene Quenon, formerly operated Summit Lumber Co. in Eagle. When the family sold its Eagle and Buena Vista lumberyards to Alpine Lumber, Chuck Quenon and McCarty began operation of the Buena Vista True Value store.

McCarty said the entire family is excited to be back in business in the Eagle Valley and noted that there is a large local need for a retail hardware business. While retails sales will be the primary focus for the new ACE Hardware, contractor accounts will be available.

Cripple Creek Backcountry stays on a roll with expansion to Aspen Highlands

December 2, 2019

Doug Stenclik and Randy Young had a feeling that ski touring — everything from uphilling at ski resorts to more adventuresome trips to the backcountry — would surge in popularity, so in 2011 they took a chance and opened a shop dedicated to the niche sport. It paid off and they have continued to grow. This winter they teamed with Aspen Expeditions to take over retail operations at the base of Aspen Highlands.
