Ace Hardware in LaGrange Park is by far the best! The owners are the Sweetest! They treat their customers like family, Also their staff is very friendly and helpful too! They always have what you need for your DIY home project! and contractors love them too! Don't forget about their beautiful Garden Center with new paved parking in front and parking lot across the street too!

Village True Value Hardware in Western Springs rocks, and has for 50+ years! Owner Linda Johnson and her staff are totally focused on customer service, and their buying team knows what their customers want and need.

The old fashioned feel of Village True Value adds to the old fashioned service they provide.

As a lover of my town, I have to sadly go with Villiage True Value...and it's not because what they have so different or the service is better, etc. It's just easier to get to! I try to go to Horton's as needed but occasionally VTV is a little easier to navigate.

ACE in La Grange Park! Friendly, helpful staff!

Horton's ACE Hardware is the GREATEST place to go. Their staff is the smartest, most helpful and, friendly in town! Not to mention they have a Fabulous Lighting department. Everything from light bulbs to crystal chandeliers they have it all, no other hardware store could come close. Customer service is their #1 priority, I have never walked into that store without being greeted and offered a beverage. I try to go there for everything because the service is exceptional, and the preferred customer program could not be better!
