  1. What are Heartware Stories?

    At Ace Hardware we believe everyone has a story to tell. These are acts of amazing moments, where an individual or a community bonds over shared strength and determination. These stories happen in big cities and small towns across America. Each and every day. Even in hardware stores.

  2. How are Heartware Stories selected?

    Heartware Stories are reviewed and selected by a team at Ace Hardware’s Corporate office. We discover Heartware stories a number of ways – from hearing about them from our customers directly as well as through social media, local news coverage and Ace’s corporate field staff.

  3. How can I submit a Heartware Story?

    We’d love to hear a story to consider for a future Heartware Story. If you have a story you want to share please include a short description, name of the store, name of the city/state and names of individuals involved. You can submit a story in 3 ways.
