In true family style, brothers Nick and Kirby Kuklenski own and operate two “sister” Ace Hardware stores in Colorado Springs, keeping local homes beautiful with name-brand products and services. Lawns grow thick and colorful with Scotts fertilizers, plants, and seeds from the shops’ lawn departments, whereas computerized color matching in the paint aisles keeps outsides as vibrantly hued as flowers in a garden or a house fly strolling across an artist’s palette. Collections of DeWalt and Craftsman hand and power tools help homeowners assemble Weber grills, with staffers standing at the ready to build any piece bought at the store. Even autos can get in on Ace Hardware’s helpful services: keys are cut onsite, with Sidewinder keys including built-in chips that interact with car computers to ensure proper starts without feeding vehicles buckets of floppy disks.
With spring spreading like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home and lawncare projects underway. Reclaim the yard from winter's occupation with Adams Adirondack stacking chairs ($14.99 each) and an Ace Flexogen 50-foot garden hose ($19.99). Illuminate outdoor living spaces with a 6-pack of Solar Walk Lights ($12.99) or the welcoming blaze inside a Living Accents portable firepit ($29.99). Ace also covers indoor bases with products and services for tree-free areas of the home. If you need to match paint to a favorite coverlet or choose a hue that complements a pleather recliner, each store offers a paint-matching service free of charge.
When brothers Joseph and Herb Guiry founded the paint store that bears their name, Denver was still an untamed frontier town, William McKinley was President, and the flag still had 45 stars and not a single cartoon dog. The year was 1899, and, in the hundred-plus years since, the store has remained a family tradition across four generations of shopkeepers. Today, the store’s seven locations carry paints for everything from houses to school projects, and supplement their stock with home decorations including lighting, wallpaper, and furniture.
