You may see the familiar denizens of Breed & Co. donning new red vests, marking the transition to a new "family of retailers," but fret not! The relationship between our beloved local Breed and national chain Ace Hardware is cooperative, not top-down corporate. Ace is their new primary hardware supplier. The things we love about Breed & Co. are still there. Human-scaled and humble is how we like our hardware stores, and Breed & Co. still has that in spades.
