***History of Elder’s Hardware***
Elder Glenn and three partners opened our first store in 1969 on Highway 58 in Chattanooga,TN.
The Cleveland location was opened in 1982.
The first Georgia store was opened in Rome, GA in 1992. Elder attended Darlington High School, located in Rome.
The company’s first computerized checkout and inventory system was installed in 1995.
Elder’s enters the Knoxville market with the purchase of Myers Brothers’ Ace Hardware at Dixie Lee Junction in 2000.
Elder’s opens a newly constructed store in Chickamauga, GA in 2011. Glenn Brother’s Hardware, owned by Elder Glenn’s father, was established in 1919 and sold in the 1990’s.
On September 14, 2014, we added the Elder’s name to Ace Hardware to better identify ourselves as a locally-run family business.
We opened our 19th store to the company and fifth location in South Knoxville at the end of 2015.
We bought Rocky Hill Hardware in Knoxville in January of 2017, giving us a total of 20 stores in the Chattanooga, Knoxville, and North Georgia areas.
