About Us

About Ace Hardware & Equipment

We are your local hardware store and we are a part of your community. Ace Hardware & Equipment has 2 locations in Hanover County, Virginia. We are small business owners who are local and loyal...just like it ought to be. While others have become large and impersonal, at Ace, we've remained small and very personal. That's why we say a visit to Ace, is like a visit to your neighbor.

Ace stores offer a wide variety of paint, lawn and garden, tools, local niche services and virtually anything you'll ever need to fix, repair and maintain your home. And of course, Ace is most certainly the place with the HELPFUL HARDWARE FOLKSTM

Founded in 1969, Ashland Auto Parts was opened with one location in the Town of Ashland, Virginia. After an acquisition by a Hanover County businessman, Ace Hardware debuted in Hanover in 2000. We opened our second location in Spotsylvania County in 2014. In 2021, we opened our third Hanover County location in Mechanicsville. Our partnership with Ace Hardware allows smaller stores like ours to compete effectively at retail despite larger stores in our market. 

For a far more personal form of service, be sure to visit us at your local Ace Hardware & Equipment store. And the moment you walk in the door, you'll know why we are Ace... the Helpful Place.
