Sanford businesses reopen after reconstruction

Sanford Hardware reopened its doors in downtown Sanford on May 13 after a complete redesign and build effort led by Three Rivers Corporation. As work wrapped up in the store in late April, hardware associates busily stocked shelves while painters, construction workers and electrical contractors applied finishing touches to the building’s interior. This kind of concerted effort has allowed Three Rivers and its partners to build the store from the ground up in six months after floodwaters from the May 2020 dam failure destroyed the original structure.

Funding originated from the Gerstacker Foundation, the Strosacker Foundation, the Dow Chemical Company Foundation, the Alden B. Dow Foundation and Corteva Agriscience.
