McKENZIE (October 4) — Bennett Hardware hosted a grand opening Friday to mark the change in name and ownership of one of McKenzie’s oldest businesses. The event kicked off with a morning ribbon-cutting and continued with food, special deals, drawings and other giveaways throughout the day.
Attending the ribbon-cutting were employees, guests and community and business leaders, including McKenzie Mayor Jill Holland and Carroll County Mayor Joseph Butler.
Seth Bennett, owner of Huntingdon businesses Hardware House, Watson Lumber Company and Bennett Rental Company, purchased Arnold’s in August 2016 from Danny and Susan Arnold. Arnold’s had operated in McKenzie since 1979. Bennett made the name change this summer.
Bennett told The Banner that “nothing has changed but the name” and that the store is “proud to continue serving McKenzie and Carroll County.”
The staff, which includes many familiar faces from Arnold’s, consists of Manager Cindy Poff, Adam Cary, James Hastings, Lacey Hunt, Jim Rainey, Susan Arnold, Joe Ann Savage and Stanley Haywood.
Bennett Hardware is located at 16030 North Highland Drive and operates Monday through Friday from 7:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 7:30 a.m. to noon.
