The Ace Hardware in West Boca is closing for good.

BOCA RATON, FL ( — The Ace Hardware store at 441 and Yamato Road is closing — for good — on Sunday, apparently unable to compete with the massive Home Depot and Lowes just blocks away.

The closing is yielding big savings for shoppers. Already full of good deals, the store tonight says it is slashing prices an additional 30 percent on pretty much everything.

On a personal note, we are sorry to see Ace go. In a world of megastores, it was nice for a trip to the hardware store to take five minutes and not need a navigation system to find lightbulbs.

We wish the “Helpful Hardware Men” well as the seek new employment.
