Sunset Ace Hardware is the neighborhood’s prime destination for home improvements, from lawn and garden care to paint supplies, interior fixtures and even outdoor living.
Store Manager Joseph Klein and Paint Department Manager Rush Chati are committed to offering excellent customer service. They excel in problem-solving and are glad to work with clients who meet unexpected homecare challenges, from individual homeowners to building superintendants and specialized contractors.
Chati’s paint department will offer aesthetic consultations and computer-matching of color. Sunset Ace Hardware is a Benjamin Moore dealer. Bring in a swatch of wallpaper, or fabric, and the staff will offer you advice on certain color palates to coordinate, as well as general painting techniques.
Sunset Ace Hardware is well-stocked with every item imaginable. In operation for 35 years, this family enterprise offers plumbing supplies, chains, space heaters, shades, custom cabinetry and vanities, keys, and much more. Seasonal items are available as needed. Special orders are taken and can be habitually filled in just a few days.
The store is well-organized and efficiently run. The aisles are clear and easy to navigate, should customers wish to peruse all of their options before heading to the counter. The rapport between the staff and its large number of returning customers is clearly evident whenever folks walk in for advice on their purchases.
