Celebrating our 101st Year!
In 2022, Laurel Ace celebrated our 101st year in Oakland/on MacArthur Blvd with a Laurel Ace Grows UP Celebration October 28-30, recognizing our new 2nd floor of retail space with a 3-day celebration! We continue to be #AceHelpful with even more products for our neighborhood customers in 2023! HAVE YOU BEEN UPSTAIRS YET?!? We’re delighted to have almost DOUBLED our retail space by converting our upstairs level for more products for you!
October 28-29-30 was our big “Laurel Ace Grows UP” celebration – and we hope you enjoyed the three days of 101st birthday cupcakes, giveaways, demos, visits by community partners UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospital Oakland, the Women’s Cancer Research Center, Our Water Our World, and our Fall Pollinator Event featuring local beekeepers and honey sampling!
As with every month, we have seasonal specials in our monthly Red Hot Buys: CHECK IT OUT
THANK YOU for helping us raise over $12,000 in holiday fundraising for our local CMN Hospital, UCSF Benioff Children’s Hospitals in Oakland & SF! THANK YOU! Please consider rounding-up your change through the end of the month as we “Round Up for Reading” in January. When you shop with us this month, we’ll ask if you want to round up your change to buy books for the Ace “Building Blocks of Literacy” program, giving free books to the patients and their siblings at Oakland Children’s Hospital. Those pennies do make a difference for the kids – thank you for helping us help our local CMN hospital!
We have been grateful to remain Forever Essential & Always Helpful during the pandemic, and we offer mask-less ordering and pickup when you order from AceHardware.com. We offer curbside pickup, and delivery from store, plus phone orders. Thank you dear customers for your understanding, as we continue to navigate these unprecedented times.

Our goals: Better Service, Better Selection in the BEST Neighborhood!
Oakland has counted on Laurel Ace Hardware for over a century, and since announcing new management in April 2017, the new owners have reinvested in the community to continue the Century-Long tradition of service for our Laurel District neighbors!
We’ve expanded our sales floor upstairs: our Tools, Plumbing and Electrical sections moved upstairs, along with Fasteners, Automotive, Storage, Light Bulbs, and much more!
Thank you to all our neighbors who have recommended us on Nextdoor, Yelp, Google, Facebook, and via the back of your register receipt! We listen to every single review and are delighted that we have delighted so many of you with our five-star service! Check out some recent recommendations here!
