Business Profile: Southport Ace Hardware
We all know the jingle — “Ace is the place with the helpful hardware folks.”
That stands true at the new Southport Ace Hardware, which opened on January 8, 2020. After opening their first Ace Hardware in Leland in 2011, owners Shannon and Landon Barker decided that Southport would be a great second location for them. They purchased and renovated the building where the old Stewart Hardware store was located. Ace Hardware Corporation is still, to this day, owned solely and exclusively by the local Ace retail entrepreneurs.
Southport Ace Hardware provides customers with the products and services they need for home or outdoor projects and repairs in a small personal and friendly environment. Their team is made up of local residents of Southport and Brunswick County. Many of them have varied expertise and backgrounds in home improvement and their products. They also employ students from local high schools and are active members of the local high school booster clubs.
“Together, we work hard and play hard,” Landon says.
Unlike at most hardware stores, you do not need to hunt down a person to help you at Southport Ace Hardware. Their customer service is impeccable. They offer small engine and lawn mower repair, key and glass cutting, screen repair, paint mixing, propane, deliveries, online ordering, in-store pick up, bulk ordering and special orders.
“We don’t mind going the extra mile for our customers,” Landon says.
As a small, family-owned business, they are proud to be in a community with such friendly people and invite you to come in to see the difference their customer service makes.
