The Ace Hardware on Lincoln has not only capable employees but also people willing to take the time to help you out and figure out your project with you. I hear their customers always complaining about some experience they had at the local Home Depot and how they would always be loyal to Ace after that. I remember back when the Big Box store came to town they were afraid of going under, but after the initial craze it hasn't appeared to dent their customer base, who like the personal service and the small store where the furthest they'd have to walk is 50 feet to get PVC fittings, floor cleaner, or paint. AND they have the only guy in town who can mix paint. His name is "Mike" and there's always a line for him of people who need the RIGHT color. Ace is a great place for personal help and service.
