About Us


Brian & Calvin with Ace's J.D. Power awards (2003)

    Ace Hardware in Monahans, Texas was founded in 1985, and is still family owned and operated with the third generation now actively engaged in the business. Starting from very humble beginnings and a very tight shoestring, Monahans Ace Hardware has grown into a 16,000 square foot hardware store and lumber yard. Remodeled and expanded several times over the years, we offer everything you would expect a hardware store to carry plus a whole lot more. We offer a large selection of plumbing, hardware, paint, tools and lawn & garden supplies; much like you would expect to find in many large metropolitan area stores. We also offer many convenient services such as UPS shipping and much more. The big difference is that we have the helpful advice and the products you are looking for without the crowds and long lines.

    We strive to have everything you need in stock and in project quantities, but we can't have everything, so we are happy to special order almost anything. Best of all we have the friendly, helpful staff to help you finish your projects and get on with your day.

    Ace Hardware is the largest retailer-owned cooperative in the industry. As an independently owned member of this cooperative, we have the buying power of over 5,000 stores in all 50 states and over 70 countries. This large buying power means we are able to offer competitive prices every day. Having served the communities of West Texas for the last 30 years, we have learned that our customers are our biggest assets. As the helpful hardware folks, we promise that, “Helping you is the most important thing we have to do today.”

    Today, you may find our fourth generation playing throughout our stores. Wyatt (5) and Grayson (2) enjoy helping their dad, Calvin, and 'Pops', Brian, at the store.
