    Mahomet Ace Hardware
    Jim and Amy Hood acquired Mahomet Ace Hardware in 2004 from longtime owners and friends Ernie and Millie Rosenberg of Mahomet.  The store had about 7100 sp ft of space. After updating the store they felt that they were still short of the space needed to adequately serve the community. In 2012, Ace expanded east into the old NAPA location and removed the wall, giving Ace 29% more retail space and the opportunity to remodel and expand their selection. Since that time they have added an outdoor display area out front. With long time manager Wayne Munster and an experienced staff they are continually working to tailor their assortment of the needs of the community. From the very first day in Mahomet, the Hood's found the community warm welcoming, and accepting. They are grateful for the tremendous community support and look forward to growing and improving the store as the opportunities present themselves.
