About Watson Ace Hardware

Our History

Watson Ace Hardware opened its doors on September 29, 2009 in a newly constructed building located at 142 E Tyranena Pk Rd in Lake Mills, WI.   Approximately five years later, we opened a store in Jefferson at 411 S. Main St.  The Company’s mission statement is, “to provide quality solutions and products, with helpful and friendly service.”

As your local Ace Hardware, our store is a member of the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the industry. Ace Hardware began as a small chain of stores in 1924 and has grown to include more than 4,600 stores in 50 states and more than 70 countries. As part of a cooperative, every Ace Hardware store is independently owned. We are all committed to being “the Helpful Place” by offering our customers knowledgeable advice, helpful service and quality products.
