About Us

ownersAce Hardware has been rooted in the Greater Lafayette, Indiana community as a locally-owned business since 1936. Today, Ace Hardware is owned by the third generation of Ace Hardware Retailers, Jeff and Jenn Holloway-Deterding. The original Ace Hardware location was purchased by Jenn’s parents in 1969 and was located on Main Street in downtown Lafayette. They opened the West Lafayette location in 1985 to better serve the West Lafayette Community. Jeff and Jenn returned to town in April of 2002 to manage the newest Lafayette location that opened on Beck Lane. In 2006, Jeff and Jenn purchased the Lafayette and West Lafayette stores from Jenn’s parents, and we are proud to continue providing the great customer service and convenience our customers have come to expect.
