The old Kmart space on Fairview Ave. at Five Mile Rd. is being repurposed for a number of new uses - the latest of which will bring a hardware store to the area.

The Idaho Youth Ranch, Johnny's Fit Club and a church had previously been announced - but permits indicate a new Ace Hardware will slot into the corner space behind a new Maverik station.

Kmart left a large 84,000 square foot space behind, and the center's owners decided to split the space up into multiple pieces.

The hardware store will take up about 17,000 square feet
