About Horn’s Ace Hardware Stores
The story of Horn’s Ace Hardware stores started in 2012 in Kilmarnock. We realized that the community needed and wanted a local hardware store. But not an average store, people were looking for a neighborhood store that was fun to shop.
We began renovation on the Kilmarnock store in the Spring of 2012 and opened our doors to the community in July, 2012 to great success. Our friends and neighbors in the community are excited and supportive of a hardware store that offered both an interesting shopping experience and a friendly, helpful staff. Within a few years of opening we saw the need for quality rental equipment and we added Ace Rental Place to our Kilmarnock store.
In 2015 while driving through West Point we noticed an empty building that just called our name. We realized that the community of West Point was in need of a hardware store. So the idea of West Point Ace Hardware was born! After extensive renovations and improvements we opened the doors to the public in February, 2016. And once again the community embraced us and the fun and interesting shopping environment we offer. Not only are we a hardware store in West Point we also offer on site lawn mower repair and service.
We opened our third location outside of Saluda in Middlesex county in early June, 2017. When looking around for locations for new stores Middlesex was just an obvious choice. We saw the need for a fun and interesting store that offers way more than hardware. And at our Middlesex store we added Ace Rental Place from day one.
At Horn’s Ace Hardware stores we strive to be good partners in the communities we serve. It is our hope that we offer quality customer service and we like to say that if we don’t have what you’re looking for then nobody has it! That may be a little bit of an exaggeration but we do promise if we don’t have it we will do our best to find it for you. We are always searching for new spaces and welcome your request. Please stop by your local hardware store soon.

Founded in Chicago in 1924, Ace Hardware Corporation has grown to become America’s neighborhood hardware retailer. Over the years, we’ve built the brand from a small group of hardware stores to a network of more than 4,800 locations across the globe.
Many people don’t know that Ace is a co-operative company. Unlike a franchise models, Ace’s mission is to provide support and good product pricing to a growing number of independent hardware retailers. That mission couldn’t be more important than it is today with the growth of Big Box retailers forcing so many small independent businesses to close.
An independent marketing study confirmed that the Ace Hardware name is one of the most widely recognized trademarks in America. “Ace…The Helpful Place” is the most recognized slogan in the home improvement industry (The Gallup Organization, October 2006). And today, consumers rely heavily on the helpful advice and product choices they get at their neighborhood stores.
We continue to grow because of the level of service we provide our customers. Backed by a state-of – the- art distribution center, dedicated corporate support, and advancing our 80-year tradition of service, solid corporate citizenship and success
