About Us

We provide a friendly, respectful environment where everyone can find reliable service and quality products at fair prices that enable the satisfaction of a job well done. We are a family owned home center that has been a part of the Marshall community since 1975.

Many of our customers shop our store because of our convenient parking and personalized service. We know many of our customers on a first name basis! Our store was recently recognized as a Ace Pinnacle store. We are graded on 12 different performance drivers that include keeping relevant products, events, training and stocking levels. But the one that stands out is our customer service level. Each month we are graded by a secret shopper that keeps our staff on our toes for keeping our service level top notch.

Our History
Now known as, Ace Home & Hardware, located on Highway 59 north, in Marshall, was started in 1952 by Luis Galanter under the name of 'Marshall Lumber Company' in a 20 ft. x 24 ft. (480 sq. ft.) garage. The business began with three employees. In 1960 there was a 384 sq. ft. addition to the building increasing the size to 864 sq. ft. In 1965 the business was purchased by Roy Fox and Robert L. Carr, still operating as Marshall Lumber Company. In 1972 Ray Fox, son of Roy Fox, purchased Roy's share of the business. In 1975 Marshall Lumber was expanded to 16,000 sq. ft. and became a True Value store. In 1990 there was an addition of 10,000 sq. ft. to include Flooring & Building Materials show rooms. In 1998 we had our final expansion adding on another 12,000 sq. ft. bringing our total size to 38,000 sq. ft., areas that were added include a 'Just Ask' rental department and a newly expanded Bath Shop. In 2013 the store changed hands to the next generation: James Carr, Jennifer Johnson and Mike Fox took ownership of the Marshall location. In October of 2015 we joined the Ace Hardware coop and became Ace Home & Hardware. Part of the Ace conversion included new lighting vendors, expanded housewares, RV supplies and our newest category Wine & Beer making supplies.
