As your local Ace Hardware store, Tennessee Ace Hardware is a member of the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry. Ace Hardware began as a small chain of stores in 1924 and has grown to include more than 4,600 stores in 50 states and more than 70 countries. As part of a cooperative, every Ace Hardware store is independently owned.
Tennessee Hardware was founded in 1977 as a True Value hardware store, and was located on East Main St. in Gallatin. In 1985, the store was moved to a new, 30,000 square foot building at our current address on East Broadway. In 2000, the store moved from True Value to Do it Best, before finding the perfect fit with Ace in 2010. The sign out front has changed over the years, but one thing remains the same: customers come first at this local, family owned and operated store.
