Home Hardware celebrated the grand opening of their new Fernie store on October 2 with a ‘ribbon cutting’ ceremony as the first event in a week of festivities.

Dealer-operators Walter and Heather Ingram paid tribute to their staff and supporters, acknowledging the 25-year journey they have been on since first moving to Fernie. Along with their son, Ryan, and his wife, Sarah, the Ingrams have been working on preparing the store for operation for over a year.

Ingram was joined by Mayor Mary Giuliano in sawing through a plank of wood as a novel interpretation of a ribbon cutting.

“I am incredibly excited to celebrate our grand opening with members of the community and our family,” said Ingram. “Being a Home Hardware dealer-owner means we have the opportunity to help our customers solve their home and building problems every day.”

The new store features all the services you would expect from Home Hardware, as well as the new ‘Home Expressions’ corner which stocks housewares, gifts and accessories to complete your home or wardrobe.

Daily barbecues were held to add to the celebrations, with all proceeds going to Fernie Friends for Friends.
