Once upon a time in 1924, four men brought their independent hardware stores together in Chicago, Illinois to create ‘Ace Stores’, named for the WWI flying aces, fighter pilots with dogged determination. The company grew by leaps and bounds, from one main store to over 300 and in 1973, it sold to its retailers and become wholly retailer owned and operated. These days it’s the world’s largest hardware retail cooperative and the nation’s 3rd largest non-grocery retail cooperative. With a history of service to its customers and a business model that treats the entire company as an extended family, is it any wonder that it’s a household name?
As all stores are independently operated, Black Friday 2017 opening times will vary by location, so call your local Ace Hardware for specific hours. Most locations will be closed for Thanksgiving, giving their employees and customers the gift of a laid-back holiday surrounded by their friends and families. That doesn’t mean that you miss out, because the Black Friday sale will last from Wednesday, November 22nd through Monday, November 27th.
This Black Friday 2017 the deals are hotter than ever and ‘Ace, the helpful place’ is there to help get your home holiday-ready! There’s something for everyone and lots of deals to have your house be the talk of the neighborhood at a fraction of the price. From the front yard to the kitchen and straight on to the back garden, Ace Hardware has your back with all the gear you need and the stuff you WANT (checking items off your list or even treating yourself, we won’t tell!) so let’s break down the best of offers this Black Friday.
