Local residents and Crossroads Ace Hardware franchise owners Billy Atchison and Tim Gibson recently opened their newest location in north Riverview on U.S. Hwy. 301, in the strip center in front of the Riverview Flea Market.

Ace stores offer a wide variety of paint, lawn and garden, tools, business supplies, local niche services and virtually anything needed to fix, repair and maintain your home or business. And as the company’s saying goes, “Ace is the place with the helpful hardware folks.”

We carry Craftsman, Weber and Yeti products, plus we offer some great brands of pet food, including Victor, Fromm and Taste of the Wild,” said Gibson.

In addition to the large selection of products, Crossroads Ace also offers automotive chip key cutting, propane, carpet cleaning machine rental, computerized paint color-matching, screen repair, delivery and more.

Ace Hardware stores are known around the globe as being your local hardware store with a commitment to community. “You can’t beat our personal service or the best fastener selection in town,” he remarked.

The company’s website is filled with a plethora of information including interactive project videos, tips from home experts, lawn and garden advice, step-by-step how-to’s and much more.

Gibson and Atchison also are the franchise owners of three other Ace Hardware locations including Ace Hardware, Feed & Pet Supply on Big Bend Rd. in south Riverview; Ace Hardware & Sporting Goods in Lithia and Ace Hardware of Sun City Center.

Gibson said that a second location in Riverview just made sense. “It was an open market with a need for a small hardware store,” he commented.

Ace Hardware of Riverview North is located at 7441 U.S. Hwy. 301 N., Suite 120. Store hours are 8 a.m.-7 p.m. Monday-Saturday and 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Sunday. Call 405-8990 or visit for further details.
