ownerIQ Welcomes Ace Hardware as a Retail Partner
ownerIQ is proud to announce Ace Hardware, the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the world, as a retail partner! With the addition of Ace Hardware, ownerIQ continues to add to the largest network of active online retail shoppers!
Founded in 1924 by a small group of Chicago hardware store owners, Ace changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to purchase merchandise in bulk to save money and buy at the lowest possible price. And to this very day, Ace Hardware Corporation is still owned solely and exclusively by the local Ace retail entrepreneurs. Now, over 4,600 of Ace’s 4,700 stores around the globe are independently owned and operated by local entrepreneurs.
The current Home Improvement industry represents $322.4 billion a year in revenue and is set to experience continued growth with the increased interest in DIY projects. Through ownerIQ’s new partnership with Ace Hardware, you can now target over 30MM active annual online home improvement/DIY shoppers.
With 4,700 store locations, Ace has the personal touch of a neighborhood store with the resources of a national brand. Ace offers a wide variety of hardware, lawn and garden, tools and virtually everything you’ll ever need to fix, repair, and maintain your home or business.
The addition of Ace Hardware not only provides brands, retailers, and advertisers a great opportunity to target home improvement shoppers but also pairs well with our already extensive portfolio of over 600 retailers, product brands and e-commerce websites. Our partners contribute data on over a billion shopping behaviors and e-commerce transactions monthly, thereby significantly improving your digital marketing efforts.
