Ace Hardware distribution center moving, many could lose jobs

PERRYSBURG TOWNSHIP, OH (Toledo News Now) -

One hundred people may be out of work in Perrysburg Township by next year. The Ace Hardware distribution center will be closing.

A company spokesperson says they will be relocating to an unidentified location, but, "employees will have a range of transitional opportunities."

Township Trustee Gary Britten says this is a major blow.

"[It's a] shock because they've been wonderful neighbors for all the years they've been in the township," he said. "Any time a business leaves, you hate to see it, especially the ones that have been really easy to work with."

The spokesperson did not guarantee that all current employees would have a job at the new location.
