Conversion Stories: Mazzone Ace Hardware

Matt Mazzone is a hardware store owner like you. The difference is that he converted his stores to Ace so that his business can profit from a nationally recognized brand and never-ending support.

Mazzone Ace Hardware is a family owned and operated hardware store located in the heart of Carroll Gardens, Brooklyn. Founded in 1950 by Salvatore Mazzone, Mazzone Ace Hardware has been serving Brooklyn for over 60 years! Thier Court St. location not only has a full selection of hardware items, but a full garden center and Benjamin Moore Paint department as well.

In July of 2011, The Mazzone Family opened their second location, Mazzone Paint Center, at 211 Smith St. The Paint Center offers a relaxed atmosphere where customers can spend time working with our color consultants to choose the perfect color for their project.

Matt Mazzone was selected as the 2016 All-Star Retailer for his exemplary fundraising for Cohen Children’s Medical Center and his efforts to influence and engage Ace stores across the country to fundraise for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals.

Most notably, Mazzone had tremendous success with a unique fundraising initiative in his store selling World’s Finest® Chocolate Bars. The effort was so successful that he introduced the concept to leadership at the Ace Foundation, with the vision that it could be scaled and used as an additional fundraising lever across the entire Ace organization. The idea took off quickly and to-date, over 1.2 million bars have been sold in Ace stores generating more than $600,000 for CMN Hospitals across the country in just 16 months.

In addition, Mazzone hosts an annual Pumpkinfest event for his store’s neighborhood community. This fun-filled event has become a local tradition for many families with proceeds benefitting Cohen Children’s Medical Center. The event includes pumpkin decorating, pony rides, face painting, music, food and raffles.
