Ace Hardware of Ellenville was established in 1946, and operated by the Auerbach family for 53 years. In 1999, a former employee, Brian Culwell purchased the store with hope to establish a destination store within the Ellenville area. In 2001, Mr. Culwell was recognized by the National Hardware Association as a "Young Retailer of the Year" for his success in rebuilding the business. At the same time he created a web store www.TOOLCORRAL.com that specializes in woodworking machinery. With the success of the website and the store he moved to the store to North Main St, in 2003, This location was 4x larger than the original store. Constantly listening and observing his customers, Brian continued to expand the store to the point they had outgrown the 6000 sq ft location. In 2009, they moved to it's current 18,000 sq ft location at 140 S. Main st. Ellenville NY. We have recently expanded our offering of Lumber & Building Materials. We are working hard to fill all of your needs.
