Crown Ace, better known as Ace Hardware, is a small regional chain of hardware stores. With only 17 locations, customers can still expect personalized service, vaguely reminiscent of the mom-and-pop hardware stores of the past. Another great perk of Ace stores is that they keep their selection to the essentials, so you won't get lost in a giant warehouse while looking for a screwdriver or a toilet seat. Ace specializes in cleaning products, Weber grills, Benjamin Moore paints and supplies for essential home and business maintenance and construction projects. Ace also sells its own brand of paint and various other items. Ace prides itself on being "the most helpful hardware store on the planet."
