Butters' Ace Hardware

Butters' Ace Hardware will open in Thompson's Station in the third quarter of 2022.

Butters’ Ace Hardware has announced plans to build a 17,500-square-foot Ace Hardware in the Tollgate Village development in Thompson’s Station, located at 1109 Elliston Way.

It will be the first multi-department specialty Ace Hardware store format in the area. Construction will begin this month, with plans for completion in the third quarter of 2022. 

Butters’ Ace Hardware will be locally owned and operated by a Williamson County family with longtime roots in the area who saw a need for a premium hometown hardware store to serve their community. It will feature an extensive offering of premium brands, including Ace exclusive products, to cater to the needs and cultural fabric of the surrounding area. 

The Butters’ Ace Hardware soft opening is tentatively planned for August of 2022.

“Thompson’s Station is thrilled to welcome Ace Hardware and its owner-operators Dr. Gerald Butters and his family to Tollgate Village’s commercial district,” Thompson’s Station Mayor Corey Napier said. “For many years, the community has sought to bring new business investors and retail entities into the town, with one of the biggest requests being a hardware store. The local, neighborhood owner-operator Ace model is a great fit for our town as we strive to build a modern Mayberry where you know and help out your neighbors. I have every confidence that Dr. Butters and his team will soon know your name, and Ace Hardware will be a regular community gathering spot on the weekends.”

Butters’ Ace Hardware will sell traditional hardware products, such as lawn and garden materials, fasteners, tools, plumbing and electrical supplies, as well as several specialty departments, including outdoor goods, clothing and equipment, nostalgic sundries, specialty outdoor grillware, giftware, home decor and boutique fashion. 

The unique departments will be presented in a store-within-a-store concept. 

Unique touches are planned for the store, such as an open mic stage for local musicians to perform and offer an artistic touch to the retail experience.  

“We look forward to becoming a helpful neighbor and a valued employer in Thompson’s Station,” said Dr. Gerald Butters, co-owner of Butters’ Ace Hardware. “It’s a lively and fast-growing community, and we are thrilled to be building a neighborhood store here. Most of all, we’re excited as a local family to show our neighbors and customers how we live the ‘Ace Helpful Promise’ every day by delivering reliable service, helpful advice and quality products while maintaining a regional identity with unflagging integrity.”

Butters’ Ace will be the first store for the owners.

A ceremonial groundbreaking is planned for Dec. 11 at 11 a.m. at the future home of Butters’ Ace, 1109 Elliston Way in Thompson’s Station.
