Owned by brothers Robert and Patrick Eames, the ACE Hardware at 4920 McBryde Ave. has been serving Richmond residents for 43 years.
The business is known for excellent and personalized customer service, as evidenced in Yelp reviews and also through word-of-mouth from neighbors.
“Besides selling retail hardware, we solve people’s problems with plumbing, electrical…” Bob Eames said.
Eames will attempt to lend his experience to just about any home improvement job. His shop also carries certain products that cannot be purchased elsewhere in the area.
He loves how Richmond is close to the Bay and the hills.
“It’s got Wildcat Canyon,” Eames said. “What more could you ask for?”
When stepping out for coffee or food, Eames recommends Cafe McBryde right across the street from ACE, or Catahoula Coffee on San Pablo Avenue.
