You’re likely familiar with this popular hardware store chain, which has 4,400 stores across the U.S. The Kitty Hawk location offers friendly service and expert advice with a modest size. You’ll find good prices on everything from hardware, gardening supplies, pet food, paint and other home essentials.

The Kitty Hawk location caters to the cottages by offering an ample selection of outdoor furniture, including wood-crafted Adirondack chairs and porch swings. If spending time in the back yard is your goal, ACE offers a selection of fire pits and hot tubs. You can also find grills, charcoal and other supplies for your next outdoor barbecue.

The over-sized Adirondack chair in front of the store (spotted from the highway) offers a great photo opportunity. When you take your photo, head inside to look for local specialties including jars of North Carolina honey.

Sign up for the store’s ACE Rewards and you’ll receive coupons and discounts with every dollar amount you spend, good at any of ACE’s chain stores.
