In case you need some tools, implements, or other supplies for your house, you definitely need to go to Ace Hardware, the biggest retail cooperative of house equipment in the world. The organization runs more than 5,000 locations in 60 countries with 17 centers of expansion in the US and extra offices in Chinese Ningbo, Colon, Panama, and the United Arab Emirates.

Ace Hardware's story started from a union of four American businessmen, Richard Hesse, E. Gunnard Lindquist, Frank Burke, and Oscar Fisher. They decided to combine their shops in Chicago and create shops under the "Ace Stores" sign. On the market, it appeared in 1928, and the first shop opened its doors in one year. In 1931, the organization got its current title "Ace Hardware Corporation".

By the way, what does the word "Ace" in the title mean? The founders decided to title their hardware shops in honor of ace pilot fighters of World War I. They were known as brave fighters who could meet all the challenges. So the Ace Hardware stores do the same.

The goal of Ace Hardware is very ambitious – to be the top and most reliable location of hardware items. To achieve this goal, the company follows the next fundamental principles: victory, greatness, love, honesty, appreciation, tolerance, and work in a team.

What can you buy in the Ace Hardware stores? Here, you can buy power tools, grills, furniture for outdoor, appliances for garden and lawn, paints and other stuff. Besides selling hardware, Ace shops provide the services of construction and installation, cutting of keys, cleaning of carpets, repair of screens and glasses, computerized paint – matching of color, etc. Depending on the location, Ace Hardware adapts its stores' measures and shapes – it can be a small shop in the city or a big one in the rural area. The common thing of all Ace stores is that all of them have qualified specialists, which will help you to select the best hardware for your house.

Like many retail stores, Ace Hardware offers to get the membership and earn rewards on purchases. If you want to become an Ace member and get rewards, you don't need to pay any fees. The membership program named Ace Rewards allows you to get 10 scores on every $1 you spend on the purchases (it includes physical stores, online shopping, and purchasing through the app). When you earn 2,500 scores, you will get a $5 reward, which you can use for the next buys. Ace charges the rewards on Mondays (it depends on which balance you have on your account on Sunday). The charging happens during five business days through online tools, and then Ace will send you an e-mail with all information. In case you do not use your reward scores during a month, you'll get a physical voucher through the mail.

If you want to get an Ace Rewards Premier membership, you need to spend $750 in one year. This membership gives access to special offers and deals.
