Ace Hardware returns to Fox Lake with new store

FOX LAKE – Ace Hardware recently returned to Fox Lake.

The 9,100-square-foot Fox Lake Ace Hardware store, 107 Towne Centre Lane, opened July 4. An official grand opening will be Oct. 10. 

Fox Lake Ace Hardware is the sixth store opened by family owners Les and Jeremy Melnick, a father and son team. The duo has five urban locations. The Fox Lake location is the Melnick’s first foray into the suburbs, according to a news release.

Fox Lake didn’t have an Ace Hardware store for two years after Will Grosse’s Fox Lake Ace Hardware shut its doors in 2012 after serving the community for 50 years. Grosse is working at Fox Lake Ace Hardware part time.
