In February of 1986, long-time Nappanee residents Kim & Pam Stickley opened Coast to Coast Hardware.  Two years later, they purchased the True Value store in Nappanee.  They immediately moved the store to a larger location and converted it to ACE Hardware.  This move blazed a 20 year trail of growth and expansion under the ACE franchise name.  Expansion continued in 1993 and 1997 with the acquisitions of stores in Ligonier and Elkhart , respectively, both of which were immediately converted to ACE Hardware locations.

In 2007 the Stickley’s son Kyle and son-in-law Jeremy Bear, bought into the business with the opening of the Linway Plaza location in Goshen .  This was followed by a move of the flagship Nappanee location to a much larger location (the old Martins building).  This move will support future growth of the Nappanee location.

Today, Stickley ACE Hardware is truly a family owned and operated business with Kyle and Jeremy overseeing most of the day to day operations of the business and Lisa (Stickley) Bear managing the office.  We invite you to stop in to any one of our 4 locations and experience the Stickley ACE Hardware difference today!
