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 and services for $10. This Groupon is good at four area Ace Hardware locations: Willow Glen, Palo Alto, Winsom's in San Mateo, and Ocean Shore Hardware in Half Moon Bay.
With spring spreading 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, a VPT rip hammer for $8.49, 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 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).
All four San Jose–area locations are owned and operated by Larry Hassett and his sons Eric and Richard. Although the stores are part of the Ace corporation, they run each shop 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.
Stock and prices may vary at the different locations. Call ahead if you're looking for a particular product.
