CHARLOTTE, N.C. - Growth is on the radar for this longtime hardware store at Park Road Shopping Center. Blackhawk Hardware said it will expand its footprint by 40 percent with a 12,000-square-foot addition.
The store has been a fixture at Park Road Shopping Center since Jim and Barbara Wilkerson opened it in January 1977. Their son, Andy, is a co-owner as well.
Blackhawk is a locally owned and managed ACE hardware store.
“Charlotte’s population influx and development pushes businesses to also adapt, and we think our customers will be equally, if not more, pleased with the results of our expansion as we are,” said Andy Wilkerson, co-owner at Blackhawk.
