Photo Gallery: Norridge Ace Hardware in Illinois

Raffaelo and Jackie Cianfaglione have owned and operated Norridge Ace Hardware in Norridge, Illinois, since 2016.

As a child, Raffaelo used to shop at the store with his father. He now enjoys serving the community where he grew up.

Read this story from the August issue of Hardware Retailing magazine to learn how Raffaelo’s experiences as a child helped him to buy the store and how a retailer friend helped guide him throughout the buying process.

The Cianfagliones remodeled the store after acquiring it, increasing the size of the salesfloor, replacing the lighting and reorganizing the product mix. View the photo slideshow to see the store, as well as Raffaelo, Jackie and members of their team.
