Sunshine Ace Hardware stockpiles more than 40,000 tools, fishing gear, housewares, and other handy items across six local storefronts. Three-piece stainless steel barbecue sets ($24.99) brave scorching flames as chefs spear, flip, and sear entrees over backyard grills. Fasten loose screws or ease bolts from lab experiments’ necks with a 21-piece drill bit set from Craftsman ($24.99), or beckon fish from the waves with a deluxe Shimano Zircos 4000 rod and reel fishing combo ($79.99). In downtown Naples, whimsical hardware-themed fixtures illuminate Sunshine Ace Hardware’s recently remodeled flagship store, whose walls are dappled with photos of the store’s 60-year history and prehistoric man’s discovery of circular saws.
Joseph Sirotkin founded DynaServ more than 45 years ago, on the principle that customer service stands out when it comes to landscape maintenance.

They install and maintain landscapes for homes and businesses, performing services that include irrigation, pest control, and hurricane restoration. The company’s garden center also boasts 25 acres of plants, pots, figurines, and accessories to outfit green-thumbed shoppers.
