2-J Supply Company signed a lease Monday with two men who will be opening a hardware store in the building 2-J purchased at 1019 Goodale Blvd.

2-J bought the building after learning it would have to leave its current location at 898 Goodale because of the Grandview Yard project, manager Tony Finfrock said.

The as-yet-unnamed hardware store will occupy the small glass front portion of the building, he said. 2-J will occupy the larger rear section.

2-J is planning to move into its new location during the third week of February, Finfrock said. The hardware store is expected to open in April or May.

The Grandview area has been left without a hardware store since last fall when Trustworthy Hardware closed at 1217 Goodale.
