The history of Ace Hardware
Ace Hardware was started in 1924 by 5 men in Chicago and has since grown into a very successful organization. Ace Hardware locations include all over the U.S. and overseas locations too, with headquarters in Illinois. They went international in 1990, and established stores in Latin America, the Caribbean, Asia, and the Middle East.
This store was named after the ace fighter pilots in WWI. They are known for being able to overcome everything, and that's the approach the company took to their business, too. We'd say it worked - they're still going strong after almost 100 years in the business!
Ace Hardware's celebrity collaborators
Did you know that Ace Hardware's ads often feature celebrities and well-known figures? Over the years, quite a few famous folks have helped them promote their lines.
One of the first was Connie Stevens, an actress who was famous for being int he T.V. show Hawaiian Eye. Actress Suzanne Somers followed as the next celebrity commerical presenter. John Madden, and NFL coach and then later NFL commentator, also did some commericials for Ace.
