The Kenney’s, Tim and Julie, take enormous pleasure in serving the south Fort Collins community and beyond through their place of business, Ace Hardware of Fort Collins, located at Harmony & Lemay. Owner Tim Kenney worked in banking for 28 years while his wife Julie worked in the marketing industry prior to taking ownership of Ace Hardware of Fort Collins. Their combined experience of banking and marketing give them the tools and expertise needed to lead one of the most successful hardware stores of the Front Range.

“We have watched the area grow in quality for more than 30 years. It is part of a beautiful and thriving neighborhood, offering so much to all the areas residents.” – Tim

As longtime northern Colorado residents, Tim and Julie know what it means to be not just business owners, but dedicated members of the Fort Collins community.

“We chose this business because the residents of the area are so community oriented and care deeply about their neighborhood and the quality of life here,”- Julie.

Tim and Julie’s first priority is always ensuring that customers have all the necessary supplies, resources and knowledge to turn their living space into a palace. On any given day, you’ll likely find Tim walking around the store – hands-on, greeting people and assisting customers.

Ace Hardware began as a small chain of stores in 1924 and has grown to include more than 4,900 stores across all 50 states, the District of Columbia and approximately 60 countries. As part of a cooperative, every Ace Hardware store is independently owned.

From Our Customers

I wanted to let you know that today Nick Anderson helped me above and beyond my expectations. He was able to provide unparalleled service and he is extremely knowledgeable. I’m currently visiting here from Europe. I perform a lot of hands on work and am in contact with hardware stores and other employees very frequently. I haven’t received the level of excellent service and willingness to help in any other hardware store, ever! Please pass along my gratitude and congratulations to him and his trainer for an excellent job!Alexandra A.
I went in to buy a lawn mower and there were three employees working. One of them was busy with a customer, another was Shannon, the manager. The third was a new employee in training. The new employee, Pam, was very kind and offered her help, despite being what I imagine was her first day on the job. Shannon came over to help Pam through the checkout process. Both women were great to work with, and Shannon was beyond amazingly helpful. This store is now officially my store of choice for tools and appliances.David S.
Hello, I just wanted to send a quick note to let you know about my positive experience at your store. I came by during the last snow storm on Feb. 1 and a nice young gentleman helped me purchase my first snow shovel, ice melt and sleds. He was knowledgeable and friendly and I truly appreciated his help after just moving up here from Arizona. The ice melt was a godsend. My movers came to deliver my stuff early the next morning, and my shovel works spectacularly! Thank you so much for your great store and service.Katie L.
