“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.”

“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!”
