Lemont Welcomes New Ace Hardware on State Street
Owners Dan and Pattie Harris opened their new store Monday next to Chipain's Fresh Market. The family also owns an Ace Hardware store in Palos Heights.
Lemont’s new Ace Hardware opened on Monday – and owner Dan Harris is delighted by the number of customers who have already visited his store over the past couple of days.
“We opened the doors and people just started coming in,” Harris said. “Lemont is a great town.”
The new store at 1096 State St., next to Chipain's Fresh Market, is part of the Ace Hardware chain, which has nearly 4,800 retail stores throughout the United States and around the world. Each store is independently owned and operated.
Harris and his wife, Pattie, also own Palos Ace Hardware at 6465 W. 127th St. in Palos Heights.
"We're eager to be here, and are excited to be in this community," Harris told the Lemont Village Board in June. "We just ask that the community supports us. We're locally owned, and we will pay back in many different ways."
