As their jingle goes, “Ace is the place” for your every hardware need. Founded in 1924 by a group of hardware merchants in Chicago, Ace Hardware revolutionized the business by allowing individual stores to purchase items together in bulk, in order to save money and offer lower prices to customers. With over 4,600 privately-owned franchises nationwide, Ace Hardware is your go-to place for every home maintenance and repair need. Here you will find paint, tools, hardware, plumbing and electrical supplies, heating and cooling equipment and automotive care and maintenance products. The stores also carry home décor and furnishings, as well as everything you need for lawn care and outdoor living, from furniture to grills. On the store’s website, you can not only shop all of these products, but find helpful advice and tips in interactive video projects, step-by-step how-to’s and learning guides for everything from painting to moving.
