What Our Customers Are Saying

Ashley T.Dec 28, 2021

I can always expect great service here. Last time we visited, a manager went above and beyond to help us with a semi complicated request. I was so impressed with his service that I felt compelled to leave a 5 star review. This is my go to location and they always have what I need for reasonable prices and a helpful staff if I should need any help.

Jaret S.Dec 11, 2021

Great experience with Great Lakes Ace today. I called ahead to see if they had an igniter for my furnace. They told me that they didn’t have the specific one I needed, but they have some similar. I stopped in and was greeted right away and directed toward the commercial help desk where they keep most furnace parts. The gentlemen behind the desk were extremely helpful, had exactly what I needed, and have a great sense of humor. Checking out was a painless process. They are fully staffed and I got through the line in mere minutes. The price was amazing as well. I can’t believe I haven’t been here before, but with service and selection like this I’ll 100% be back. Thank you for a great experience.

Matthew C.Nov 27, 2021

If you need it, hardware stuff, they probably have it. Lots of other stuff too. Lots of tools, just about everything. Close by so I shop here usually, better than fighting the traffic. People are very knowledgeable and helpful. And the best part…they carry Carhartt clothing. Fix-it shop does good work, but always busy so be prepared to wait for the service to be completed.

Andrew S.Sep 25, 2021

Great knife selection. Like… Surprisingly great. They have an entire wall full of high end fixed blades and folders. And I mean high end. They also have a great selection of entry level knives, too. Worth taking a trip if you’re looking for a pocket knife. Probably the best selection in Kent county.

This Ace store has completely rethought and reconfigured its customer service model. Staff is helpful from the moment you walk through the doors. Happy to see such a positive turnaround. It's a pleasure to shop here now.
