The owners of Harry’s Ace Hardware, Cary Becker and Kelly and Scott Fox, announced Thursday (Dec. 2) that their iconic hardware store will close after 63 years serving New Orleans’ do-it-yourselfers at 3535 Magazine St., and over 100 years in business in New Orleans. Harry’s Ace Hardware will close its doors in the second quarter of 2022, the company said in a press release. “We want to thank our long-term customers and our loyal employees and ensure that they have plenty of notice about this change,” Becker said. “They have been the heart and soul of Harry’s from the day we opened our doors so many years ago,”
The building at 3535 Magazine has a storied history, dating from its beginnings as a car dealership.
