A house is like a home with dozens of things that constantly need fastening, adjusting, caulking, and cake-frosting removal. Today's deal stocks a homeowner's tool belt with $20 worth of supplies for $10. This Groupon is good at four area Ace Hardware locations: Northwest Williamsburg on Richmond Road, Newport News, Hampton, and southwest of Williamsburg on the John Tyler Highway.
Drop in and pick up a Steel Grip six-piece screwdriver set for $8.49, a VPT rip hammer for $6.29, and a whole bunch of screws, anchors, and bolts (prices vary), and you'll be ready to finally mount every buffalo nickel and steel penny in your coin collection. Illuminate the newfound décor with a 12-pack of Ace light bulbs ($21.48), the better to see by as you make use of a Purdy four-piece premium paint-tray kit ($19.99). 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. Get keys made for $1.99 a pop, or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine ($30 a day to rent).
Although the stores are part of the Ace Corporation, each shop is run like a small family operation, with dedicated customer service that will bring back fond memories of simpler days, such as December 8, 1947, or September 26, 1959. Whatever the project may be, Ace Hardware carries the wares and professional guidance to get the home-improvement wheel running without unexpected leaks or squeaking noises. Top-drawer customer service, an enormous stock of supplies for all occasions, competitive prices, and the ability to special order any product make Ace the place that houses dream about when they begin having existential crises.
