Serving Our Community Since 1950!

Loving the community we serve is an essential part of our Outer Banks Ace philosophy since we started in 1950. Outer Banks Ace supports local non-profits, helps with local fundraising and assists local projects through sponsorship opportunities & donations. When you shop one of our 6 convenient locations, you support a locally-owned business who invests in the future of our community.

“It is impossible to overstate the impact that Outer Banks Ace Hardware has had on our organization, Dare County Arts Council. For decades, Ace has been our partner on dozens of creative projects. The owners of Ace not only underwrite many of our programs, they actively participate in our mission – providing leadership, volunteerism and expertise to the important work we do in our community. They are also a great one-stop resource for a lot of our daily needs – including a very well-stocked selection of art supplies!”

“Outer Banks Ace is one of our most outstanding supporters.  The Ace family’s avocations and interests within this community are deep rooted, and are consistent with our educational and entertainment goals.  Their generous support of The Lost Colony and it’s other programs, such as their sponsorship of the children’s summer matinee show and the funding for costume replacement after the costume shop fire,  has been a blessing to us and we are grateful for their patronage and philanthropy.”

“The term generous support best describes what our Outer Banks Ace does for Dare County Schools. Whether it’s hosting a hot dog roast/bake sale for our Odyssey of the Mind and ROV teams, acting as a drop-off space for collections, donating supplies for our schools, supporting our BOSS (Businesses Offering Schools Support) program, or sponsoring our annual Employee of the Year dinner, we can and do depend on the Outer Banks Ace stores to come through for our students and staff.”

“As our Outer Banks Community grows a little more each year so grows our Veteran population. With this growth, coupled with ongoing conflicts abroad, the challenges of our twenty six year history here on the Outer Banks have never been greater. Outer Banks Ace Hardware has been there with and for us our entire existence to help in any way they can to see that Veterans and their families are not left behind. We at Outer Banks Veterans of Foreign Wars can never fully express our gratitude for the wonderful partnership that exists between Outer Banks Ace Hardware and our diverse Outer Banks veteran community. From all of us, thanks so much for your love and patriotism. This Salute is for you Ace. Semper Fi.”
