Ace Hardware is rolling out a “Buy Online, Deliver from Store” program at participating locations across the country. The new delivery option is a key feature of the enhanced e-commerce site, AceHardware.com.
Ace locations participating will offer same day, next day and standard delivery options with purchases delivered by a local store. Ace Reward members can receive next day and standard delivery for free on in-stock orders totaling $50 or more. Each independently owned and operated store determines its own delivery radius and delivery pricing.
In addition to delivery, Acehardware.com has several other features to optimize customers’ online shopping experience including in-store pick-up and product assembly at participating retailers. Ace Rewards members can earn and redeem points online and receive instant online savings. Customers can also check product availability as well as services offered at participating local Ace stores.
“There has been a tremendous consumer shift toward free and fast delivery in the marketplace,” said Bill Kiss, head of digital, retail strategy and innovation for Ace Hardware Corp. “With 72% of U.S. households within 15 minutes of an Ace store, we are uniquely positioned to leverage that proximity to meet our customers’ home improvement needs. The introduction of delivery is another way Ace can bring our unique brand of helpfulness and convenience to customers.”
