A house is like a home with dozens of things that constantly need fastening, adjusting, caulking, and cake-frosting removal. Today's Groupon stocks a homeowner's tool belt with $20 worth of supplies at Paul's Ace Hardware Stores for $10. Choose between five well-built locations in Scottsdale (one on McDonald Drive, the other on Scottsdale Road), Fountain Hills, Tempe, and Gilbert for the friendly service of those who don't want to see your house revert to its natural state of wood chunks and brass piping.
The Paul in Paul's Ace Hardware stands for Paul E. Dauwalder, who started with one store back in 1956 and has built a family of shops that are guided by the caring dedication of a band of Dauwalders. Stop by one of Paul's stores for honest assistance with any questions you have about painting, electrical, plumbing, lawn, garden, automotive, and hardware-related duties. Bring clean air to your home with an electrostatic filter ($21.99) or sprinkle hydration to your side lawn with a portable hose handler reel ($29.99). No labeler can resist the fun brought along by an old-school embossing labelmaker ($5.99), and no sweet tooth can say nay to your very own four-quart electric ice cream maker ($34.99). Or send your tub a text message on your way home from work and let it know you’re getting some Scrubbing Bubbles Powerful Foam Bathroom Wipes ($3.99) and myriad other cleaning supplies.
Whatever the project may be, Paul's Ace Hardware has 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 Paul's the place that houses dream about when they begin having existential crises.
- The staff is always friendly and takes the time to answer any questions I might have. – Airy, Google Maps
- I do not always know exactly what I am looking for at a hardware [store]. I just know what the problem is and I need a solution. I can always count on Ace. I don't have to wait around for someone to help me. That in itself is worth the trip. – Mary W., Insider Pages
Paul's Ace Hardware
Countless repairs and home-remodeling projects can undoubtedly trace their lineage back to Paul's Ace Hardware, which began doling out DIY equipment and home-improvement supplies in 1956. Founded by Paul E. Dauwalder, the shop quickly expanded from its original 1,800-square-foot space, branching out to five shops that now operate beneath the expert eye of Paul's granddaughter. Cleaning products, outdoor equipment, and pool supplies are just a fragment of the stores' inventory, with power tools awaiting steady hands, fishing gear beckoning lake dwellers, and building materials—including the Tempe location's 56,000 square feet of lumber—standing poised and ready to be assembled into dams by handy beavers. Still in the city of its founding, the Scottsdale location has moved and upgraded to its own building.
