Coolidge Ace Hardware
In 1924, four men combined their Chicago area hardware stores to increase buying power. Richard Hesse, E. Gunnard Lindquiest, Frank Burke and Oscar Fisher forge the beginning of Ace. March 2, 1928 Ace stores are officially incorporated and the first 25,000 square foot warehouse was opened in 1929. By the end of the 40's, ACE is supplying 133 Ace stores in seven states with wholesale sales topping $7.26 million. The first self-service store was established in 1952. Ace moved its warehouse and corporate headquarters from Chicago to Bedford, IL in 1961. The 450,000 square foot warehouse gave the corporation much needed space for growth. Ace first expanded internationally in 1968 to Guam. The 90's has Ace launching in "New Retail Age of Ace" to help ensure the company's growth for years to come. On June 5, 2013, J.D. Power ranks Ace Hardware "Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Home Improvement Retail Stores".
In 2003, Mark Koelzer bought the Coolidge Ace Hardware store after owning stores in Wilcox and Peoria. There are 9 full-time and 1 part-time staff at the store. Mark says the best thing about doing business in Coolidge is the "small town" where you get to know your customers better. Bottom line, the Ace Hardware Store is the place to find "hard to find" items and thing for around the house. Stop on by and let their friendly staff help you find what you need. Coolidge Ace Hardware is located at 1030 N. Arizona Blvd. Phone: (520) 723-2906 and their website is www.acehardware.com.
