December's Katy Business Challenge

December, 2010

Don’t let the sign fool ya. Ace Hardware, located at 1720 S. Mason Rd. just south of Highland Knolls, isn’tAce Hardware in Katy at Cinco Ranch your typical hardware store. This amazing location features so many things you just wouldn’t expect to find in your local hardware store. From seasonal gifts and clothing to house wares and gourmet food items, Ace Hardware offers a huge selection of items that make a house a home.

There are kitchen gadgets and full dining serving sets, potpourri and gourmet coffees, candles and chocolates, and oh yeah, screwdrivers and hammers! Jackie and I love to shop here. I’m not a big fan of the huge hardware chains. I like to just run in and run out, and I don’t want to have to park in the back forty to get to the door. This location is perfect for a quick trip in and out, but once you step in you probably will find a thing or two that will catch your eye. And while they may not be as large as some of their competitors, they are masters when it comes to utilizing space. You probably won’t find yourself needing to look elsewhere for the item you need. As a matter of fact, many local contractors use this store as their go-to location when they need a special part they just don’t keep in stock.

While this store offers a unique set of goods and services (cooking classes and DIY seminars included), what really sets this place apart from everywhere else is the service. Make a trip from the front of the store to the back and you will be greeted by several friendly people, all willing and able to help you find exactly what you are looking for. The culture in the store is obvious when you walk in, they really are happy to see you. These folks want to be more than just your local hardware store. They are part of the Katy community and they take pride in serving their friends and neighbors.

Visit their website to learn more about this fantastic store and to learn more about the wide variety of services they offer and a schedule of upcoming events…I even hear Santa will be visiting in December.
