With the rush to retail locations by consumers looking for N95 masks, hand sanitizer, toilet paper and Bactro Kill by Bactronix, Ace fix-it Hardware owner Chuck Bickel issued a statement.

"Dear Neighbor,

I’m sure by now you’ve received several messages about the Coronavirus (COVID-19). I’m the owner of Ace fix-it Hardware and I live here too. My note is merely a humble attempt to assist our community as best I can, given the platform I have.

With the spread of Coronavirus across the country, we want to offer support and a steady hand knowing many in our town are fearful. Many of you are asking what you can do around the home to help prevent the spread of illness and keep your family safe. We’re monitoring the evolving situation closely and are relying on guidance from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and local health officials to inform our recommendations. We’re working with our suppliers to stock-up on in-demand items such as cleaning and disinfectant products, hand soaps, hand sanitizers and everything else you need to preserve and protect your home and your family.

We have always been proud of our housekeeping and operations of our stores and we know that keeping them clean and sanitized is even more important.

In addition to our regular daily cleaning efforts, we’re increasing the time we clean and sanitize our stores. We will especially focus on our most frequented areas like checkout areas, restrooms and associate break rooms. Our goal is to provide an excellent customer experience when visiting our stores.

We have been working with our suppliers to ensure the products you want are available when you need them. Due to the high demand for some items we started to limit the number of items such as cleaning supplies, respirators and gloves to ensure we can serve all of our neighbors.

We realize minimizing contact can also help prevent the spread of illness, and we’ll continue to offer several ways for you to get everything you need through Buy Online, Pick-Up in-store or Buy Online, Deliver from store. Visit us at or call us directly. Phone numbers can be found at We will deliver your order to your car, when you drive-up. We want to make it as convenient as possible for you to get the products you need, when you need them.

From my family, we offer our deepest sympathies to those who have already been affected. Ace fix-it Hardware is here to serve you. Our sole purpose is simple – we exist to help others and we are committed to supporting our community in this time of need.

Stay healthy…and wash your hands.
