dealsace hardware - 15% off online - free ship to…


The Ace Hardware near my house looks like it survived a nuclear holocaust. No AC, random mismatched floor tiles, a circa 1970 coke machine that says "Does not work" but people still put money in it. I think they still have one of those manual credit card imprinters

With that said, I choose that place over Home Depot because they provide hard to find items that Home Depot doesn't carry with 100 times the floor space. Seriously, have you ever tried to find a specialized bolt or screw at HD? Good luck.....


The owner of my local Ace knows about everything tool/gadget related and where everything in his store is. 9 times out of 10 he is waiting right by the door to ask what I need and walks with me to find the exact item I was looking for and has me back at the checkout in less than a minute.

Needless to say I also choose to go to Ace over Home Depot or Lowes.


The best thing about Ace is they have their nuts and bolts in bins instead of bags, perfect for when you need to find the screw the fits that hole and you are unsure if it imperial or metric.


ACE... It's The Helpful Place


@onecomputerkid: Not only that, but the quality is a lot better. I've torn the heads off of way too many big box screws. I'll gladly pay a few cents more for something that actually works.
