City could soon have a new hardware store

Do-it-yourselfers looking to support a local business rather than a big box store when it comes to purchasing their hardware needs may be in luck.

Only weeks after it was announced that Trojan Hardware would be closing its doors of its historic Congress Street location, it seems that another hardware store could soon be cropping up in the city's downtown.

A job listing on the Saratoga County Chamber of Commerce's Web site ( shows that Jeff and Deane Pfeil, who own the Conservatory, Powers Park Lofts, and several other properties in Saratoga and Clifton Park, are looking for someone to manage such a store.

According to the listing, the goal of the position will be to "develop (the) store's reputation for excellent quality, selection and service from day one."

When contacted by The Record for comment and information on the project Friday, Deane Pfeil said that she was not ready to reveal any information on the new venture just yet, but said that she was looking for a new location in downtown and had no plans to takeover the former Trojan Hardware building.

The manager position could pay anywhere from $25,000-$50,000 a year, with the store anticipated to be open by August, according to the listing.
