Proudly the Oldest Hardware Store in Maryland.

Two locations to serve the community. Ellicott City and Columbia.

Family-Owned by Maryland Locals Since 1845

Clarks ACE Hardware is a local family-owned business that has been in business for 175 years.

In 1845, John L. Clark opened Clarks Farm Supplies in Ellicott City, Maryland. Little did he know that seven generations of Clarks later, his hardware store legacy would live on as Clarks ACE Hardware, still located in Ellicott City and now the 3rd oldest family hardware store in America.

What has sustained Clarks for 175 years in the business is a strong family work ethic, a total dedication to customer service, adapting quickly to changes in the hardware business, and the ability to adopt new technology. Today, Margaret Clark is the seventh generation owner and leverages the latest technology to ensure that Clarks ACE Hardware’s Columbia and Ellicott City locations are stocked with the products that her customers need. She finds opportunities to give back to the community and provide the items customers need. In 2020, Clarks Hardware has already donated over $100,000 to different causes, including donating PPE to the local hospitals.

Join us in spreading kindness and support throughout our community this March as Clarks Hardware partners with the Howard County Food Bank for a special donation drive. From March 1st to March 30th, we'll be collecting non-perishable donation items to help stock the shelves of the food bank. Every contribution counts, no matter how big or small, and it all adds up to make a meaningful impact.
Here's how you can participate:
πŸ›’ Simply drop off your donations in the designated green totes located by the exit door during our normal business hours.
πŸ₯« Not sure what to donate? Here's a list of much-needed items: bags of rice, pasta & sauce, spices, tuna, peanut butter, condiments, dry beans, hot & cold cereal, 100% fruit juice, diapers (size 4+), and feminine hygiene products.
But wait, there's more! Don't have supplies to donate, or looking for another way to contribute? You can still make a difference through our March Round Up at the Register program. Simply round up your purchase total to the nearest dollar, and the difference will go directly to support the food bank.
Together, let's show the power of community and compassion. Thank you for your generosity and support in helping our neighbors in need. Let's make this March a month of giving and gratitude! 🌟πŸ₯£πŸ₯œπŸπŸ›’πŸ₯«
