✨👋 WELCOME BACK to all our neighboring locally owned retail, restaurants, salons, and all the other wonderful businesses that are reopening this weekend. We mean it so sincerely when we say we missed seeing you around and are glad to have you and your staff back in the community- it just hasn't been the same on the block without you. If there's anything we can do to help you get back to business, please don't hesitate to reach out- we are here for you 💪💜💛💙

We are so tremendously grateful to supply our communities with the supplies they need to get through this trying time. We are even happier that we have the ability to offer online ordering and curbside pickup of essential supplies to keep you and our entire staff safe and employed.

We have about 10x the order volume for online orders than ever before- sometimes fulfilling 50+ orders per day. It's more often than not that we can get to your order same or next day. We strive to honor acehardware.com's promise of "same day pickup", but given the volume it might take a bit more time to work down the line.

If you can, please wait 48 hours before contacting us about your order, and wait to get the fulfillment order from Ace before stopping by. We promise, we haven't forgotten you and we'll let you know as soon as it's ready! TY so much 🙏we truly appreciate your understanding and love our customers. We are here to help you in store and online.

BioBlocks are a great alternative to firewood- made from 100% kiln-dried, compressed hardwood sawdust, the chemical free logs are perfect for firepits or wood cooking. Unlike firewood, these blocks can be brought into national parks and campgrounds without the risk of introducing nonnative insect species. Each block has 4 hour burn time.

Starting seeds this year? We can't recommend CowPots enough- these biodegradable containers are made from pressed cow waste, which makes them 100% recycled and compost friendly. When your seeds are ready to go in the ground, just plop the entire thing in the ground- container and all! Now available in the gardening department (while supplies last)

You may have noticed gel hand sanitizer is hard to come by these days as the "gel" ingredient is in short supply from manufacturers. The liquid hand sanitizer currently in stock at our store is very easy to use and effective at killing the virus at 80% alcohol or more. We recommend applying it via a spray bottle, which we now carry for $2.99 each (sanitizer sold separately).

This is a super helpful new tool for those of you looking to paint during quarantine! Let's call it "Color from the Couch".

While we are still mixing paint for customers, we ask that you help us expedite any paint orders for the safety of our staff and customers with the following steps:
1. Use the Ben Moore Color Portfolio app or visit www.benjaminmoore.com for advance inspiration. Don't forget to think about the sheen (aka level of gloss) you want, too!
2. Prepare a list of supplies needed for your paint job.
3. Let our staff pull the paint off the shelves for you (there is no one-size-fits-all option for paint!)
4. If possible, ask us to prep and pay for your order in advance through our curbside pickup service- just give us a call or send an email to [email protected] to get started.
5. If you have to come into the store, please note that browsing is limited to 15 minutes or less. If you feel comfortable waiting outside while we mix it, that's even better!

We are still committed to providing exceptional customer service - thanks for helping us help you!

Hiya customers! Here's looking ahead at the forecast for the week. As some of our shoppers know, we are SUPER BUSY on the weekends (especially when we have great weather!). While we love seeing all our favorite customers on Saturdays, it would mean a lot to our staff if those of you who can shop ahead do so on the weekdays. They are working really hard to help everyone, but we know we can do more for our customers if the shopping was spread out a bit.

All that said, we want y'all to know how grateful we are you shop local at our store- it means so much to us to have the support of our community. And if you have to shop on the weekend, by all means! We will always be your local neighborhood helpful place.💚💛

I think this product would sell well in your store. You can buy them wholesale on my site at www.tubeanew.com
Hi- as a customer, I am concerned about management's efforts to derail a unionization drive by your employees. I and many others in the community shop union when we can, and specifically avoid any establishment that is hostile to union organizing by their employees. As such, I urge you to reconsider your stance. No good employer needs to fear negotiating with their employees on equal footing.
Thanks so much for inviting Community Forklift to your Ladies' Night event! We had a blast making upcycled windchimes with your customers, and letting them know how to donate home improvement leftovers to our nonprofit, of course ;) Also, we are so grateful to Ace for donating beautiful supplies to us on a regular basis - so it was AWESOME to meet some of your employees and thank them in person! Y'all have been such a wonderful donor and supporter of the 'Lift over the years.
