Ace Ashland Hardware to Shutter After 50 Years, New Buyer Plans Teardown

Alan Gillman, owner of Gillman Ace Hardware at 2118-20 N. Milwaukee Ave. in Logan Square, said that he was surprised to hear of the closing.

This article has 2 other Chicago locations (Show)

The news of the neighborhood staple's closure at 1013 N. Ashland Ave. has surprised a community of loyal shoppers and other hardware shop owners.

The nearly 15,000-square-foot Ace building, which sits on a 19,000-square-foot lot at 1011-23 N. Ashland Ave., is 120-years-old, according to county records.

  • One nail!??! God bless 'em!
    I never met the dad, but do know Al. I never go anywhere else to have keys made. He has never, ever made one that didn't work! I'm always afraid one day I'll be going by and see a sign that they are closing. Don't know where I'll go to get keys or glass cut after that!

  • Justin Jahnke Dog Enthusiast and Partner at Super Dog Walking

    This was the only store we went to have keys copied. They never failed on us. We'll miss the store and all the nice folks we chatted with each time we stopped in. We're going to the Ace on Milwaukee Ave across from the Congress Theatre now.

  • Darwin Elementary School reviewed by a parent

    This school is horrible. Apparently you shouldn't enroll your child here if they don't speak spanish. My child is being put back into 2nd grade because his teacher will not be returning and he doesn't speak spanish. No communication from the school was received prior to my inquiry. The principal doesn't care about the kids, he's more concerned with the school ratings and turning it into an all Hispanic school.

Good contractor needed - Palmer Square

Looking to get some work done in our bathroom and kitchen. Ideally would like to get it done in near future, seems like every contractor I talk to is tied up till 2015.

  • CPL949 HP Resident

    I just used American Quality Construction for a complete renovation of an apartment in Palmer Square. They worked with me (as a former director, I'm very used to being in charge) with regard to my supervision and pickiness in selecting materials for the job, and how I wanted it done. I will PM you with my name. Others, you may also PM me if you want further details.

  • CPL949 HP Resident

    Michael, apparently I cannot privately email you (b/c of your settings?). Please email me.

    Michael, did you get my email?
