“Ace is delighted to fulfill a need by bringing back the local, neighborhood hardware store in 11 California communities,” said John Venhuizen, president and CEO of Ace Hardware Corporation. “Ace intends to honor the tremendous legacy Orchard Supply Hardware established in these communities while infusing them with Ace’s unique culture and helpful service for which Ace has become famous.”
