About Helpful ACE

We are a local business with three generations of family working together alongside our fellow employees, serving the communities in which we live. We began in 2001, new to the hardware industry, with two stores totaling 12,000 square feet; one in Redding and one in Anderson. We added a third 6,000 square foot store in Shasta Lake that same year. Since then, we have tripled our square footage of retail space in the Greater Redding market and expanded into Oregon. We own and operate a 20,000 square foot store in Coos Bay near the beautiful southern Oregon coast.

At our Ace Hardware stores, we are dedicated to being people oriented. We have many responsibilities, but the most important responsibility is to provide the very best customer service possible.

Our Mission

To exceed our customers’ expectations by sharing knowledge, providing exceptional service, while offering quality and value in a friendly, helpful environment.


Our Culture

We respect the needs of our employees as individuals and strive to create opportunities in which they are challenged and excited by their jobs, a workplace that is fun and friendly, and an environment that actively encourages open communication. We believe strongly in the development of all employees. We are committed to the success of every member of the Hardware Express team.
