When Duane and Tami De Jong at Lake Almanor Ace Hardware decided to make the change to become an Ace Hardware store, it was done with careful consideration. Research proved that Ace offered them many benefits including great products and competitive pricing. 

The couple moved to Lake Almanor in April of 2014, where they had originally met. Both had spent summers coming to the Lake with their families, where the couple formed a relationship and eventually returned to get married. They always wanted to retire here. So, while visitng the lake they discovered the hardware store, which was at the time was a True Value and was for sale. They lept at the opportunity and settled at Lake Almanor. Loving their new surroundings, but eager to upgrade the store, they began making improvements. 

Ready to begin doing things differently, they researched the idea of making the change to become an Ace Hardware store. It was easy to see this was a good move for them and for their customers in the Chester-Lake Almanor area. 

New products offered with the Ace affiliation, like Stihl power equipment and YETI Coolers, are very popular with locals and visitors. Stop in soon. 

With customer service at the forefront, the couple have created the perfect atmosphere for the customer; their helpful staff will greet you at the door and be ready to help you find what you need. If they don’t have what you need they will order it for you. 

They offer a full selection of hardware, plumbing and electrical supplies, lawn & garden, marine and RV supplies. You’ll find everything from sporting goods and propane exchange to power tools and electronics. When it comes to household supplies, they have kitchenware, small appliances and fun home decor. Pellet barbecues from Traeger and Green Mountain Grills are popular. Customers have really taken to the entire line of YETI products and Stihl power equipment they now offer as an Ace Hardware store.
