What Our Customers Are Saying

Kaitlin H.May 20, 2022

Their staff provide a consistently positive customer experience! They are attentive, friendly, and helpful. The store has a great selection of traditional hardware products as well as home goods. Highly recommended!

Philip R.May 7, 2022

A wide selection of products from grills and accessories to scented candles and canning supplies. Bags of mulch and topsoil are available, as well as everything you'd need for painting. Easy to access, on Michigan near Fuller, and the staff was very helpful.

Jeremiah J.Apr 21, 2022

Love this place. Been going here for years, since the old location. They’re super helpful, and way better than a super store. Recently, I had to replace my license plate screws on my 4RUNNER. Sue, not only got me the correct ones (in stainless), but I only had to buy two. Better than a super store with a 19yr old working who doesn’t care, or doesn’t know anything. Not to mention, I would have had to buy a whole pack there, when I only needed two. Shout out to Rylee’s Ace, and Sue. It only cost me all of $.80 with some help from someone who cares about what they do!!!

Promote Larry, he’s incredible. Demonstrated both extreme patience, problem solving abilities, and product knowledge in helping my OCD father pick out light bulbs. Larry ran multiple bulbs through the tester for my dad to see each color, guided him on what to consider/not pick, and accommodated each detailed question my dad had. Really impressive personal service for what was ultimately a $30 purchase. My dad’s coming back for all other related purchases now. :)

Chelsea D.Feb 27, 2022

The selection and stock is a wide variety of products. The employees are also very helpful. They would always help me if I need help finding anything and its not hard to find someone to help me. Returns are also easy, I purchased some shelf brackets that weren't compatible and got a refund no problem. I will definitely be back
