Gifford Attracting shoppers locally and supporting the newly stocked Fluvanna Ace Hardware (formerly Do It Best) was Joe Chesser’s message to the group of well-wishers gathered at Friday’s (Sept. 12) ribbon-cutting ceremony.

Among the spectators cheering co-owners Renny Megahan and Jeff Craig were members of the Fluvanna Chamber of Commerce: Scott Valentine, Debra Lucado, Jonathon Oliver, Tracey Williams, Vicki Karabinus and Karen Bowles. Tony O’Brien and Rick Kelly, candidates for Board of Supervisors, were also on hand to give support.

Valentine, President of the Fluvanna Chamber of Commerce, also stepped forward before the ribbon was cut to give a few words of support for local businesses in general and praise Megahan and Craig for being proactive in business and retail.
