Whenever I need a garden item or hardware item, I stop off at Ace. The staff is super friendly and helpful at all times. The plant knowledge that you gather after talking to the staff there is great(I have killed so many plants it is pathetic, but they are helping them survive). They also have wonderful sales. It is always a quick stop, cause someone asks you for help as soon as you walk thru the doors and they take you straight to what you need. Cashiers are always smiling and friendly. It is just like they say in the commercials..."neighborhood place" & "a helpful hardware person".
