ACE Hardware Comes to Goleta
By edhat staff
The rumors were true, ACE Hardware is taking over the former Orchard Supply Hardware (OSH) location off Fairview in Goleta.
In November, edhat readers discussed the rumor asking if an ACE Hardware was on its way. Turned out they were right! Signs are now up at 125 N. Fairview in the Fairview Shopping Center.
Miner's ACE Hardware plans to open this summer as part of Ace Hardware's buying co-op owned entirely by independent dealers. Miner's started in Grover Beach in 1956 by brothers Lee and Glenn as a family business. They hired their first employee, Wally Lewis, who still works at the Grover Beach location.
In 1964, Glenn purchased his brother's share of the business and in 1972 they joined ACE Hardware. Lee's oldest son, Mike Miner, was named CEO of the business in 1982.
Goleta will be Miner's Ace Hardware's ninth location as they currently have stores in Arroyo Grande, Atascadero, Grover Beach, Los Osos, Morro Bay, Nipomo, Santa Paula, and San Luis Obispo.
