Major upgrade for Fort Scott hardware store

FORT SCOTT, Ks. – Ever since it opened almost five decades ago, Mayco Ace Hardware in Fort Scott has been a family business.

“All the hard work that my father put into this business, my grandfather put into this business (has paid off.) And so it’s been a great venture for me to be here and be able to do this with my two boys,” said store owner Chris Maycumber.

Store owner Chris Maycumber will eventually pass the store on to his sons, but for now he’s focusing on making sure they and the Fort Scott community have the best hardware store a growing city could ask for.

“We’ve got more people everyday moving downtown and everyday moving to Fort Scott, and so this as a hardware store for convenience for residents as well as businesses is just unparalleled,” said Fort Scott Director of Economic Development Rachel Pruitt.

Maycumber’s customers will soon be treated to an upgraded store with a new facelift.

The store is receiving a community development block grant worth almost $225,000 and Maycumber will be contributing roughly $75,000 in matching funds. That money will go towards roof and ceiling repair and replacement, window and door replacement, and making the store ADA accessible as well as more energy efficient.

Maycumber hopes the upgrades will be up and running by early summer.
