Sunshine Ace Hardware, which got its start in 1958, is one of just four franchises worldwide that is receiving added attention for its 100th Anniversary Block Party. Ace Hardware is sending a film crew to Southwest Florida to document the celebration.

Ace Hardware was founded in 1924 by a group of five Chicago hardware store owners that changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to pool their buying power and purchase merchandise in bulk, ultimately passing those savings on to consumers. Today, Ace Hardware is the largest retailer-owned hardware cooperative in the world with over 5,900 locally owned and operated hardware stores in 60 countries. Earlier this year, Ace Hardware launched Vintage Threads, a collection of clothing and hats featuring historic logos from the company's past.
