“The staff are really helpful and friendly with our kids. They have a new service (call by phone to start it) where you can ask over text if they have certain items and they send you a picture of that product or section of the shelf. I highly recommend this local business. "

"Always have the best experience here. I went in the store looking for a hose attachment for my sink and John was so helpful. I think he's in the paint department but I happened to catch him while making his way through a different area and he did not hesitate to help me...I love that their employees willing to help their customers. I'm not sure I'll go anywhere else unless I really have to. Thank you for your amazing customer service, something that a lot of business don't have anymore."

"I am so impressed with the knowledgable and extraordinary service. My daughter and I went in because she was unable to unlock her bike lock at Woodside High. We had two employees help us figure it out, then they actually came and cut the lock off for her. Incredible. we purchased a new bike lock and were on our way...They go above and beyond. It is so nice to see a business with outstanding customer service! Well done Hassetts."

"Love this store. I've been here many times to pick up little things for my sons home. I love that Resharp is now available at this store. You can get your knives sharpened in just minutes for only five dollars per knife. The people here have always been very helpful polite and kind which for me is very important when it comes to customer service and spending my money. The store is well-stocked with garden items plumbing, electric, Hardware and great advice."

"I was impressed by the helpfulness of every employee I came in contact with. Moreover, not only were they helpful, they were friendly and pleasant to deal with as well! If you compare this experience with what you get at H. Depot, well... you can't. There is no comparison. At HD it might be days before you find a group of employees huddling in a corner hoping not to be seen. At Hassett, employees were readily available and willing to assist. I want to give a special shout out to Clarence for being the icing on the cake at check-out. Great job everyone!"

"All of the positive reviews were correct about this place. Brought my kitchen knife and meat cleaver to be sharpened by their ReSharp machine. The sharpening met my basic expectations. Customer service is truly customer service, the employees are nice and friendly. I will see them for my next sharpening needs."

-Jaimito T.

"Love this bustling business. You rarely see the staff alone because they're always quick to drop what they're doing to help a customer, but remember when they're at their busiest to be patient if they are helping someone else because that's what they do best- help. I rarely know what I need or what I can use in place of something else for my project, but they always seem to know, and they explain things so I can get the right things and be on my way without having to return until my next project.
They also have a great variety of household items and gifts. Totally beats driving to EPA and Home Depot."

"Thank you to everyone who is coming to work and helping Palo Alto during the worst crisis of our lifetimes. You are heroes...I've been coming here for five years and I always have a good experience whether it's just picking up a lightbulb or needing help with mosquito netting or getting a key duplicated or knives sharpened... This place is such a pillar of our community...thank you, wonderful wonderful hardware professionals."

"Great local hardware store in Palo Alto. Every time I go here I always feel well taken care of by their sales staff. Super HELPFUL, fast checkouts and tons of great product for every day around the house. I bought a Weber BBQ grille a few months back and not only did they deliver it to my home for free they made sure it was set up and even cleaned before they left my house. I lOVE this store and will always go here when I need home improvement items. Keep up the GREAT work and really appreciate how knowledgable their staff is. AMAZING customer service."

"I'm a lifelong local of Half Moon Bay and it had been super difficult for me to get a toolbox installed on my Chevy Colorado, So I had to install it myself. I had installed one as best as possible and went to Ace hardware to get the right type of screws to hold in my additional locks... An absolutely amazing person named Thomas came out and helped me fit everything the way that it needed to be. He was at the end of the day and he took his time to help me out...He was so amazingly awesome, kind, and took the time to guide me through the process to make sure everything was super secure and done right. I learned a lot from him that day and I'm so thankful for every single person that works at Half Moon Bay Ace hardware, but especially Thomas. Thank you so much for being so helpful."

"Big shout out to the staff of Hassett Ace Hardware in Half Moon Bay. Today is our son's 6th birthday and we were looking to do some special experiences to go along with all of the presents. We reached out to the store and they were AMAZING!!! Not only did they wrap the present, but THE ENTIRE STORE stopped to sing happy birthday. We could not have asked for a better way to celebrate...Needless to say, they went overboard and we were thrilled. THIS is what makes a hometown hardware store just that. Big box stores simply couldn't do this. Thank you Hassett Ace Hardware!"

"Today's round of applause goes to Gary who helped us today just as he does every time he sees us. He always asks how we're doing and he remembers the things we tell him. He knows the location of every item in that store. He always tries to make sure we get the right product for our needs. He shows us things we might have missed without him, maybe something with a better price or quality. Gary is great at customer service and it makes the shopping experience so enjoyable. It's comfortable to go in there and kinda fun!"

"Best hardware store around. Best employees, best service, best selection, best products.
I drive 15 miles to shop here instead of my local hardware store. I stopped there yesterday looking for products to help me get some paint transfer off my car. Thomas not only showed me the best products but to make sure they met my needs he came outside with me to look at the car and showed me how to apply the products. He took the time to take off a lot of the paint to show me how to do it. If you need help it's the best customer service around."

-Sue S.

"I have found all the employees at Ace really helpful the many times I've gone there. But I particularly want to commend Thomas and Chuck for helping me with a very thorny problem that involved fixing my flagstone patio. When I found it was difficult to describe the patio problems, Thomas suggested that I text him some pictures and he was able to give me some great advice after he saw them. And Chuck helped me figure out another way to approach the problem and his advice also turned out to be very good. My hat is off to both of them!"
