National Mfg. buildings sit empty in Sauk Valley
No word from Stanley on plans for Sterling, Rock Falls sites
ROCK FALLS – About 6 months after Stanley Black & Decker completed its closure of National Hardware, the company has yet to comment on the future of its two buildings.
The facilities remain the property of Stanley despite a deal it announced Oct. 9 with Wisconsin-based Spectrum Brands Holdings, which bought Stanley’s Hardware & Home Improvement group for $1.4 billion in cash.
The buildings at 1 First Ave. in Sterling and 41 U.S. Route 30 in Rock Falls were not part of the deal, Spectrum spokesman Dave Prichard said.
