Nelson's Ace Hardware

New additions to Nelson's Ace Hardware in Blairsville, Georgia

Nelson's Ace Hardware in Blairsville, Georgia recently expanded its operations by adding 5,000 feet of additional retail space. Exciting new merchandise includes lawn and garden equipment, a larger Carhartt clothing inventory, a glass cutting and screen repair center, and a new customer service area.

Owner Scott Nelson is excited about all the changes. As he handles day-to-day operations, answers phone calls, and sees to the many challenges that come with running a business, Nelson still takes time to greet customers and answer individual questions. He says, "The customers come first around here. We like to get to know them on a personal level so that we can meet their needs."

As I followed him around for almost an hour trying to get a feel for this article, he straightened out a telephone order, explained to a customer about chain link fence panels, helped a store associate that was arranging a display, identified some kind of beetle in a baggie (and recommended the appropriate remedy), listened to a man tell about a new type of sprayer, moved a riding lawnmower, helped out the cashiers, gathered up the sales associates for a photograph, communicated with warehouse workers on the radio, and still found time to talk with me.

Nelson's Ace Hardware is a remarkable store. A customer says, "I shop here because of the personal service, quality merchandise, and good prices. I can also find what I'm looking for." She was purchasing a large ceramic pot, gardening seeds, and various other household supplies.

Well known for their large selection of paint, lumber, hardware, electrical and plumbing supplies, building materials, fencing, feed, tack, pet supplies, farming supplies, and nursery plants, Nelson's Ace now offers much more. The lawn and garden center carries most major brands including Exmark, Cub Cadet, Stihl, Troy Built, DR Power Equipment, Generac, and Agri-Fab products.

Lawnmowers, Zero-turn and walk behind commercial mowers, tillers, generators, chippers, shredders, weed eaters, chain saws, edgers, hedgers, blowers, pole saws, sprayers, DR Power carts, and DR Field and brush mowers are now on display in the large showroom at the front of the main store and at the new Nelson's Lawn and Garden Equipment Sales and Service Center located in the original building at 1605 Old Blue Ridge Highway in Union County.

From bulk landscaping mulches to Turners Hats and Georgia Boots, Nelson's Ace Hardware has everything covered.
