Whenever possible we try to shop with the little guy and this hardware store is still our fav! The hours aren't as good as the big chain stores and some of the selection is a bit slimmer but the people are real and the money stays in town!
Ace has a lot of little parts that are helpful when doing irrigation, building or pet supplies. Ace also has a separate garden department.
Another sign of their commitment to the community is their board just inside the door- anyone can hang a flyer there advertising a vehicle for sale, childcare or couch for sale.
