Eagle building center gets new name, owners

Evan’s Building Center stood as part of the fabric of Downtown Eagle for nearly 40 years. Now, it has a new name and owners.

The DeBoer Family’s Brown’s Industries sold the Evan’s Building Center on State Street in Downtown Eagle last week according to a news release.

The Deboers – who also own Brundage Moutain – sold the company to Brandon Peterson and Tom Evans.

The location will get a new name – B’s Ace Hardware. It will join another location owned by Peterson and Evans with the same name on Fairview Ave. near Five Mile.

“The DeBoers and I sincerely appreciate the great employees and customers we’ve had the pleasure of working with and serving during many years of successful operation in Eagle,” Brown’s Industries President Gary Blaylock said in a statement. “We’re very happy the business will continue to serve the community under its new ownership.”

Evan’s opened in 1981 and provides paint, lumber, hardware and lawn and garden services to Eagle.
