Crowders Bros Ace Hardware is your old fashioned hardware store in a nice strip mall in central Lakeland. A town once without those competitors lethal to specialized stores, they now compete with Target and the dreaded Walmart Superstores.
What keeps you going back to this store is a unique selection of products that cannot be found anywhere else. After a wide search, even at our newest pet store, PetCo, I still find pet cleaning products at this Crowder Bros that CANNOT be found at any other store.
The prices are not extremely competitive, except for the monthly rebates provided by Ace. The quiet atmosphere and wide selection of everything from hobby paint to regular paint and garden items are a welcome change from some larger stores. Also, they have a frequent buyers club that offers discounts after a dollar amount!
