This summer, ACO Hardware–next door to the Chelsea TreeHouse on the city’s south side–will become Great Lakes Ace Hardware, one of forty-nine ACO stores to make the change statewide. The Michigan chain announced in January that it was closing a dozen stores and affiliating the rest with Ace, a 4,000-store buying cooperative based in the Chicago area.

ACO’s inventory is on final sale until it closes its doors July 14 for a remodel. When the store reopens July 25, it will be a “full-line hardware store with everything a customer might need for a home project–and it will offer great national brands,” including Craftsman, according to Great Lakes Ace marketing manager Brian Tripp. Tripp says the new affiliation will not affect current employees. The store will still offer general merchandise and its popular Michigan products, including Sanders dessert toppings and Faygo soft drinks.

ACO Hardware, 1103 S. Main, 475-0250, Mon.-Sat. 9 a.m.-8 p.m., Sun. 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Closing July 14. Great Lakes Ace Hardware opening July 25.
