Here is how Express Delivery works...

  1. Shop acehardware.com for all your home maintenance needs.
  2. Only items noted as available for pickup as early as today at participating stores are eligible for Express Delivery.
  3. When an item is available for Express Delivery at a participating store, you will receive a message box in your Cart or Checkout. Click 'YES' to have the item(s) delivered the same day.
  4. Once Express Delivery is selected, all items added to your cart for Free Pickup at Ace as early as today will be scheduled for delivery.

Keep your order number in a safe place; it will be needed for all order references. You will receive an Order Acknowledgment, Order Confirmation email and a Ready for Delivery email before an Ace associate delivers your order.
