Are you the type of guy who pride yourself as a handyman around the house who can fix anything?
Good news, there is a new place in Singapore for you to get the right tools and services for home improvement projects – Ace.
Courts, one of Singapore’s leading consumer electronics and furniture retailers, is opening Singapore’s largest home improvement solutions centre via a store-in-store concept with Ace, the world’s largest hardware co-operative.
Founded in 1924 in Chicago, Ace is known as the place with the helpful hardware folks in thousands of neighbourhoods across America. Through the years, Ace has grown to over 4,900 stores in more than 60 countries, with plans to open five Ace Home Improvement Solutions stores in Singapore within the next four years under an exclusive partnership with Courts.
The 8,000 sq. ft. Ace Home Improvement Solutions store is the first in Singapore and will officially opens in Courts Megastore in Tampines on 5 December 2015. Expect an extensive range of 15,000 brand new product offerings to tackle any home needs, from common maintenance issues to larger-scale Do-It-Yourself projects, covering 14 product categories:
- Security locks
- Household supplies
- Lawn & Garden
- Outdoor living
- ‘Do it for you’ services
Steve Church, Group Furniture Director of Courts, said: “More than 80% of Singaporeans live in HDB flats without a garage, balcony or garden where most DIY projects see fruition. Here at Courts, we carefully curated the products from Ace to ensure that they are Singapore-centric and suitable for the living space that we are used to. Instead of lawnmowers and chainsaws, expect to see products that optimise space, fulfill everyday living needs, and the necessary tools and equipment required to fix, repair and maintain homes.”
“Our relationship with Ace gives us exclusive access to more than 150,000 products from international brands at any one time, including those from trusted and popular American brands that Singaporeans have difficulty obtaining. We have also benchmarked against the local market to ensure the best value.”
The new range will feature more than 30 brands that are new to Singapore, majority of which are from the United States. Expect a myriad items and services, including tools, housewares, cleaning suppliers, bathroom accessories from InterDesign, security safes from First Alert, and decorative accessories from Canadian brand, Bouclair.
There are also a number of specialty items cycling enthusiasts and petrol heads will enjoy. Bell tires and Slime tube sealants for bicycles, as well as an impressive range of Little Trees fresheners and Marvel Mystery Oil for cars are some of the brands that are exclusive to Ace in Singapore. Those who fancy a barbeque get-together will also be spoilt for choice with an extensive range of grills, accessories, cooler bags and camping equipment for the perfect weekend outing.
The Ace Home Improvement Solutions store in Courts will officially open on 5 December 2015 with a line-up of activities, promotions and discounts.
Ace goodie bags and tool boxes (worth S$39) will be given away with purchases of S$149 and S$249 respectively.
In addition, for every S$90 spent, customers will receive one lucky draw coupon to win a Grand Prize of a room makeover worth S$5,690 and S$300 in Courts shopping vouchers. Second prize is a Nippon Painting Package and S$200 in Courts shopping vouchers, and third prize is a Nippon Painting Package and S$100 in Courts shopping vouchers.
