Xpress has confirmed that the Citizens Hardware Do It Best store on 310 Weaverville Highway will close its doors on August 31. The store’s owner says that details on the closing will be coming later in the month. Citizens Hardware was established in Asheville in 1941.
The news comes on the heels of several recent restaurant closings, including Tripps on the corner of College and Charlotte streets, Three Brothers Restaurant on Haywood Street and the Barbecue Inn on Patton Avenue. The three restaurants had been in business for 27, 52 and 50 years respectively.
