Big G ACE Hardware was born in 1961 and was located on the southwest corner of Second & Kansas streets in downtown Hastings. Big G ACE Hardware operated as a complete retail hardware store until 1987, at which time a decision was made to open our "Commercial Division". This division was housed within the hardware store. Big G ACE Hardware served hundreds of retail and commercial customers. As we grew over the years, it became quite apparent that we could no longer fit inside the current building. On Feb 14, 2002 it was announced that Big G ACE Hardware had purchased the former ShopKo building north of Hastings. After 5 fast and furious months of planning & preparing, the move was made by staff & friends of Big G, to 3203 Osborne Drive West. The move was started on Thur eve and by Monday morning, July 1,2002, we were open to serve our faithful customers. At that time we added a lumber division and changed our name to Big G ACE as it currently is.
