For over 90 years, Ace Hardware has been known as the place with the helpful hardware folks in thousands of neighbourhoods globally, providing customers with a more personal kind of helpful. With more than 4,800 hardware stores locally owned and operated around the globe, Ace is the largest hardware cooperative in the industry.

Founded in Chicago in the early 1920s, Ace Hardware Corporation was born of a small grouping of independent dealers that has grown to form an international network. Now having more than 4,700 stores in over 60 countries, Ace has become one of the largest independent hardware banners in the world. This global recognition, enhanced by the accessibility of service from a local retailer, has enabled the Ace brand to rank among the top 100 best-known brands in the world.

Of all sizes and all models, in urban and rural areas, it is local entrepreneurs in their community who manage Ace hardware stores that are independently owned. Taking advantage of the international purchasing power offered to them under the Ace banner, a peak commercial experience and an integrated supply chain, they offer quality products from around the world at competitive prices.

Named first in terms of customer satisfaction in 2007-2015, Ace hardware stores stand out from other major groups of hardware stores for the actual implementation of the promise to provide the best possible service to its customers. You will find in each store the same friendly and helpful approach and the same expertise that places the Ace hardware store in a separate category. Thus, each member of the Ace team, which has more than 80 000 employees worldwide, are working to the full satisfaction of its customers, so that every time they leave the store, they are equipped with the right tools and professional advice to achieve their renovation projects.


Ace stores and staff are part of the fabric of their community. It is not just a place where they work, it is where they live, volunteer, coach and raise their families. They recognize the importance of supporting their community, and Ace Hardware dealers do just that. From supporting the building of a new recreational centre to raising funds for local and national chairities, Ace dealers are committed to seeing their community become a better place to live.
