"Most know the Ace name and what it means. What many don't know is that our particular store offers such a wide variety. We like to present something for the entire family." says Sandy Kite, Owner.

 

 

IN THE BEGINNING

In 1984 with just 4 employees, Jim and Sandy Kite built Allied Ace Hardware in Pasadena, Texas. The mom and pop company was and still is family owned and operated. In 1999, they became owners of a second store in Brenham, Texas. In May 2004, they purchased Ace Hardware at Cinco Ranch in Katy, Texas.

 

Jim's passion for community involvement and Sandy's never ending energy has helped the company grow steadily over the past years and now employees over 50 people. The original store was simply hardware. Throughout the years the stores have blossomed to now include trendy upscale gifts, gourmet food, cookware, a home décor boutique and fabulous Christmas department.

HOLIDAYS

Ace Cinco Ranch loves the holidays too. The store is transformed into Shabby Chic meets the North Pole with glamorous trees, home decorating hardware and gifts galore. Buyers and designers Mitzi Schoppe & Sandy Kite say, "We start in September and do about 30 designer trees." Each year the staff gets so excited about setting up for the holidays. It's always fun when you love what you do."
