Rockler Woodworking and Hardware is opening a new location in Fairfax County.

The hardware and woodworking shop plans to open up at 12975 Fair Lakes Shopping Center. It will be the business’ first location in Virginia.

A company representative tells FFXnow that the shop is expected to open this summer.

“Unfortunately, we do not have an exact date but the location is expected to open around late June,” the representative wrote in a statement.

Rockler takes the place of Golf Galaxy, a shop for golf clubs, apparel and equipment. The sporting goods shop is permanently closed.

The business originated in 1985 when Norton Rockler started the Minnesota Woodworkers Supply Company in Minneapolis. It now has stores and independent resellers across the country.

The store also offers free demonstrations on Saturdays and in-store classes.
