    See why ACE hardware is a great fit for IGA retailers.


    Over 120 independent grocery retailers have opened an Ace inside their grocery store or opened an Ace standalone store. Ace is the premier Hardware store in the grocery channel, and we are known for being local and relevant. Ace Hardware has over 5,300 stores worldwide, most stores are independently owned and operated. These hard-working men and women are just like you; part of the fabric of their local communities. They are small business owners who are local and loyal…just like it ought to be. While others have become large and impersonal, at Ace, we've remained nimble and community based. That's why we say a visit to Ace is like a visit to your neighbor.


    Ace stores come in all sizes and shapes based on the needs of each neighborhood. We have small, urban stores, stores inside of grocery stores, large rural stores, and everything in between. Ace stores offer a wide variety of paint, lawn and garden, tools, local niche services, and virtually anything you'll ever need to fix, repair, and maintain your home. And of course, “Ace is the place with the helpful hardware folks!”


    Founded in 1924 by a small group of Chicago hardware store owners, Ace changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to purchase merchandise in bulk to save money and buy at the lowest possible price. This partnership enabled even the smaller stores to compete effectively at retail despite larger stores in their market. Today, Ace Hardware Corporation is still owned solely and exclusively by the local Ace retail entrepreneurs.
