Windsor Ace Hardware
First Town Downtown Member, Scott Hoffman, owner of Windsor Ace Hardware, “We’re convenient. We have quality products and we offer helpful service. You can find just about anything here and run into your neighbors!”

Scott has owned Ace Hardware for over 10 years. “We can match paint colors for you. We can make duplicate car keys for much less than an auto dealership would charge. Did you know that if you buy a grill from us, we will assemble it and deliver it your home for free!”

“People don’t realize that Ace Hardware isn't a chain. Each store is unique and we can customize it to our local customers’ needs.”

Windsor residents Cheryl and Chris McAuliffe stopped in to purchase a bird feeder, "We’re here several times a week. We can walk here!”

Windsor Ace Hardware is located at 296 Broad Street. Their website is windsoracehardware.com.
