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 only good at Ace Hardware's downtown San Diego location.
With springtime temperatures spreading into summer like a bag of spilled gravy, now is the ideal time to throw open the windows and get home-care projects underway. Pick up a Stanley six-piece screwdriver set for $6.99, an Ace Claw Hammer for $11.49, 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 5-pack of GE Energy Smart CFL bulbs ($9.99), 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, Ace offers a paint-matching service free of charge. Test-drive an orbital sander ($10 a day to rent), or clean a barnacle-encrusted carpet with the help of a carpet-cleaning machine ($19.99 a day to rent).
Although the San Diego store is part of the Ace corporation, it runs 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.
Prices listed above may vary.
Yelpers give the downtown Ace Hardware 4.5 stars:
- The first 5 times I walked in here I never really got a chance to look around because 3 seconds after I walked in the door, at least 2 employees greeted me with a smile and to ask if they could help me find anything. And no matter how obscure the object was, they had it. – Denni M.
- The first time I visited this Ace Hardware, I felt as if I was in a Twilight Zone episode... The staff here is so friendly and helpful, I thought it was sarcasm at first. – Robert F.
