Founded in 1958 by George I and Jo Nell Newton, Easley Builders Supply Inc was a stand alone sawmill and lumber yard. In 1968 George joined the Chicago based Ace Hardware coop group to complement his growing building supply business, becoming store number 1174. As the business grew his son Don began showing interest in working at the yard/store and by the age of 9 he was keying locks and cutting keys for customers. George and Jo Nell's desire was for Don to grow up and take over the business someday which he did. Now that Mom and Dad are gone, my family looks to keep the business going, All though we are not in the building materials business any longer our Ace Hardware store is a direct reflection of our experience and knowledge based in the building and home center industry. We are the face of Ace in our town!
For the past 7 years Easley South Carolina has been the host city for the Big Leaque World Series. Newton's Ace Hardware of Easley is proud to be the local Ace Store involved with the success of this big event for our community.
