Ace Hardware and Outdoor Center opened in 1977 by Roger Kelly and a partner at 735 N. Galena Avenue. In 1979, they moved to their current location of 900 N. Galena Avenue where they sold boats, motors, outdoor equipment and hardware. In 1992, Jennifer Kelly (Roger’s granddaughter) joined the business and was followed by her brother Chris (grandson) in 1994. In 1995, Rich Kelly (Roger’s son) purchased Roger’s partners share and joined the family business.

Throughout the years, extensive remodeling and additions have taken place including: a warehouse in 2003, a face-lift for the front of the store in 2005, a remodel of the back storage area in 2006, a total store reset in 2007 and in 2014, a remodel of the existing warehouse into the new rental department and the addition of a new warehouse.
