Overview

A full-service, Ace-affiliated hardware store and small engine parts retailer. We stock items that can't be found in other hardware stores with an emphasis on supplying as man American-made items as possible. We are also proud of our historical contribution to Rock'n'Roll as the store "where Gladys bought her son his first guitar."

This is a hardware store mixed with past and future. As stated in another review the staff were very friendly and didn't seem to mind at all that we were just passing thru. They are a working store and it was a busy Saturday morning....More
