Grand Lake Hardware in Oakland : the backstory

ACE Hardware stores originated in 1924, starting out as a small chain of stores.  Since that modest beginning, we have grown into the largest retailer owned hardware co-operative in the industry. Now consisting of more than 4600 stores in all 50 states and more than 70 countries, we have the years of experience and knowledge of products and services to help you with any of your home improvement needs.

Since each ACE hardware store is independently owned and operated, you can be assured that our knowledge is geared to what our local community needs for plantings, repairs and projects.  If we carry it, it is suitable for our customers.

The ACE slogan is The Helpful Hardware Place, and we know how to give you personal advice and suggestions that are designated to work for you.  From selecting the proper tools, how to use them, and what else you require, we know that helping you with your project is the most important part of any job we have.
