PETAL, MS (WDAM) -

A little over a year after Ace Hardware in Petal was destroyed by the EF-4 tornado that ripped through the Pine Belt the store is once again open.

"It was a shock," said Ace Hardware's manager, Kenneth Laird. 

The store laid in a heap after the tornado, and the only thing that was intact was the concrete slab foundation.

"Ace Hardware has been a longtime member of our business community here," said Petal Mayor Hal Marx. "And to see it come back and be even bigger and better, that shows that we've made our way back from a year ago."

It took many hours for the new store plans to be finalized, but construction began in September.

While the store is officially open for business, the store will have its grand opening in April.
