Established by its namesake founder in 1935, Gus Bock's Ace Hardware has since unfurled its immense catalog of home-improvement supplies into three locations. A trio of brothers now runs each location, inheriting the business from their father, Keith Grill Sr., who bought the flagship store from the Bock family in 1990. The siblings strive to keep Gus Bock's personal ideals in mind as they populate their shelves with name-brand products, such as Weber grills, Carhartt clothing, Benjamin Moore paint, and Toro lawnmowers. Staff members can help patrons navigate the sea of Black & Decker tools and Oreck vacuums, as well as arrange services, such as window repair and custom key manufacturing. They also equip customers with a diverse collection of rentables, including inflatable playgrounds, party accoutrements, yard-maintenance equipment, and handy grandfather surrogates.
