Every time I visit this place, I leave satisfied. Great staff, awesome products! It's my adult candy store!
13:33 12 Feb 23

I love our local hardware store. The prices here are generally not much more than the big box retailers, but you can almost always find just what you are looking for when you need it. The staff are friendly and knowledgeable and always willing to help you out. Kimps also is our local dealer for a couple of well-known national brands like Festool, Milwaukee, and Ariens.
01:15 22 Jul 22
Buy your Milwaukee tools from here. The guys running that department are great. I wish the store hours matched big box store but I’m not gunna hold it against them.

If you are looking for a large selection of power equipment. Check out Kimps, lots of brands and models to choose from. Prices are competitive with big box stores. They service what they sell no need to ship it out for repairs if needed.

I stopped in to look at all of the outdoor decal they had outside. Beautiful spinners and other outdoor decorations. Some were priced extremely high (even with their "sale" prices) but some were reasonable on size. I left with three beautiful pieces, but really wanted one of the big spinners but wasn't about to spend that kind of money on one.
17:18 05 Jun 22
Amazing customer service and great rental department! Super impressed with their willingness to help. My go to store for equipment rental!
11:50 03 Jun 22
The mother of all Ace Hardware stores! It’s huge. Nice folks working there, too.
17:45 02 Jun 22
Well run hardware store. Big enough to meet most needs. Friendly staff
13:53 19 Apr 22
This place is great! I forgot how much better service a hardware store has over big box stores until i started going to Kimps. Excellent service, very knowledgeable staff, very fast service. I buy all of my paint here for my rentals and remodeling of my own home. Fill selection of Milwaukee tools and an excellent place to get keys cut. They have a little bit of everything and sell quality. I would definitely recommend.
17:53 15 Apr 22
Paint department rocks! Mallory went above and beyond! They didn't have enough of a specific paint that I was looking for. She called and located the other gallons I needed at a different store. Then she herself ran to that store and brought it back for us!

Great customer service and the people working there are great and know the products they are selling.
21:30 09 Dec 21
Kimps helped bring an old snowblower back to life after sitting in a condo garage for 10 years! They were very nice to work with and very professional. I recommend them for your small engine needs.
23:42 09 Jun 21
They go out of there way to make sure you have what you need great people
22:23 06 Mar 21
Friendly knowledgeable people who help you in any way they can. If they don't have it at Kimp's Ace hardware you don't need it. It's always a pleasure meeting the friendly people who know what they're doing and go out of their way to meet your needs.

This hardware store is staffed by the most friendly and knowledgeable people who make you feel welcome.
06:40 13 Feb 21
Honest and knowledgeable. You can’t find this type of service at the big box stores. It is always worth the trip to come here if you need information to do the project yourself or can’t find the product anywhere else.
09:18 23 Jan 21
If you want professional help offered within seconds of entering Kimps front door - you'll love this business. Knowledge from pleasant staff radiates here.They've helped me unplug my duplex toilet, run water into connecting adjustable drainspouts to prevent ice on the sidewalk, the right shovel and salt to use this winter, purchase of a Traeger grill and accessories and I've only lived in the area 4+ months!
22:20 10 Dec 20
Can't find it? go to Kimps. Not really sure what you need? Go to Kimps. They're not as large as a big chain store but they probably have the stuff your looking for. If they don't, they will help you find it and get it ordered. Very knowledgeable and dedicated staff, no need to run around trying to find someone to help you, they'll find you 👍
13:54 17 Jul 20
Went here for a rental to do some yard work - first time at the store. This place is awesome! Will DEFINITELY be back.
21:05 03 Jul 20
We recently purchased a Stihl chain saw. There was an initial product failure-which can happen-but Craig n the staff offered terrific and timely solutions!! Great after the sale service. GF
23:15 19 Jun 20
Always enjoy buying my hardware needs here! Great employees and knowledgeable! From the main store to the rentals
18:40 13 Jun 20
Love this store. They have all the strange fasteners you need, when you need them. Everyone is friendly and knowledgeable.
14:50 06 Jun 20
If you need to rent anything this is the place to go imo. Good rates, quality equipment, and helpful friendly people.
13:23 23 May 20
The ppl are great and everything you need is there
00:34 22 May 20
I've been going to Kimps for 20 years, the best rental service around (thanks Mike!). Great customer service. Knowledgeable employees.
04:46 17 May 20
Customer service is the best. Always willing to help. Can find exactly what we need.Best shopping experience.
13:32 02 May 20
This store is great. Always clean. Great selection. The staff is always friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. The customer service deserves 5 stars by it self.
22:06 15 Mar 20
New layout looks good!
01:45 20 Feb 20
I would give a higher rating for the customer service alone. The only reason I am leaving this as a 4 star rating is because I often find myself needing specialty items that are either unavailable or in limited supply as I get supplies here for my business. Still, very knowledgable staff and a good variety of high quality products.
22:02 14 Feb 20
Service guys in back are very sharp and well versed in their crafts. Brought in a Stihl BR-600 Backpack Blower and they got right to bottom of the fuel cap issues in about 20 seconds flat. Installed a new one and i was on my way in minutes. Very impressed and look forward to coming here again! Nice Store ! Nice People!
03:15 31 Jan 20
I have been renting equipment for all types of projects since 1994. Extremely helpful staff giving me advice on the best equipment to get the job done. Great to do business with!
01:54 08 Jan 20
Was looking for a carbide tipped chain for my chain saw. It was the only place that had one on the shelf. All the big Deere and Kubota dealers in the area had nothing.
01:19 19 Dec 19
This place is a great store to have in our community. Always seem to have what I need.
14:20 23 Nov 19
Buy local and support your local economy. Big box chains don't care as much about our community. Great store, great selection and friendly staff make this a hidden gem in GB.
16:39 26 Oct 19
Very nice and knowledgeable...went in for a chainsaw and they set it up and ran it for me...I’ll be back.
11:22 11 Oct 19
It is close and convenient with a good selection of products. It's a bit more expensive than the big chain stores, but the ease of getting what you need. Makes up for the price difference.
16:17 03 Oct 19
Very nice people & very helpful with any questions you might have.😊
23:15 17 Sep 19
In doing a project I was looking for some rental tools to make the job go better and faster. I had heard from several people that Kimps was a good place to rent stuff.I called ahead to make sure they had what I needed and they did. The guy on the phone said he'd hold it for me. When I got there the rental process was smooth and easy. I was shown how to use the equipment and also offered so tips. They were very patient with me explaining the settings, etc. to me as I had zero experience running that type of equipment.I would hands down go there again to rent from the guys back in that department, thanks again!
01:06 30 Aug 19
Excellent knowledgeable staff. Great selection. All around top-notch hardware store.
23:50 22 Aug 19
Love this hardware store. Always helpful, always friendly.
15:54 21 Aug 19
Was given great advice, and helped me figure out the perfect stain and sealer for my deck
03:09 23 Jul 19
The entire staff was SUPER friendly. The guys back in the dealership area were patient and I didn't feel like a novice/idiot with my questions. Thanks, Kimps!
20:16 16 Jul 19
Helpful staff with a wide variety of items to choose from to meet your needs.
16:40 26 Jun 19
Great selection and quality customer service. If you have a question or need something specific they will get it for you
23:41 25 Jun 19
Awesome visit. Went to buy a Stihl weed whacker, they put gas in it, showed us how to use it, gave us a 4 year guarantee and sent us on our way
18:38 24 Jun 19
Good selections of equipment, depending what you are looking for. They honor Craftsman hand tool life time warranty, that is nice of them. There is still hope for Craftsman tools yet.
21:26 31 May 19
Great assortment of everything we needed for our vegetable garden. All is priced well.
03:29 18 Apr 19
This is my all time favorite Hardware Store. You can't walk down an isle and a half without someone looking to assist you. Very informed about their products and quick to offer tips to enhance thier use. When summer come around and we are looking for garden plants This is the first plac e we go their plants are the most hardy we have bought from anywhere. They are reasonable priced only problem is they go quick!
23:33 05 Apr 19
Best place to get your BBQ gear! Top brands and all the accessories. Plus, they have All the flavors for Traeger pellets.
20:27 04 Apr 19
Great store locally owned. They have just about anything you could need as DYIer. We got part for an older lawn mower that we could not find elsewhere. Very knowlegeable staff who are happy to help!
18:45 02 Apr 19
Staff if very helpful, you didn't have to search for an employee like in other stores. They were readily available. I appreciate that.
00:01 15 Mar 19
Nobody can match the service and knowledge this place and their employees have. It's second to none. They do an amazing job!!!!

20:24 01 Mar 19
Best service around. I love supporting local stores. If you haven't been there, go.
23:07 16 Feb 19
When it comes to needing hardware, this is the place for me. I have never I believe left without getting what I needed. Their selections are awesome and huge, and the guys back in the hardware department are knowledgeable and helpful. And their parts department has just about anything you'll need to keep your mowers, chainsaws, snowblowers, leaf blowers and weed whackers going strong. If they don't have it, they'll order it in pronto, and you'll be back up and running quick. FYI, the also have a great rental department too, plus an LP gas refill station.
21:43 30 Jan 19
The usual great service! The store has pretty much anything you would need or want from a hardware store. Well staffed and very friendly.
10:28 23 Dec 18
If they don't have it , you don't need it. This store has all of your home improvement and decorating needs all under one roof. They also have a great rental department for equipment. Need some keys made, they do that too.
04:05 23 Dec 18
Hands down best place in town!!! Go in the power center and rental department quite often, The employees are very friendly and knowledgeable! Just a great small family owned company!! I will continue to shop there!!
16:55 10 Dec 18
What this place does for the kids at Christmas time was so amazing. Santa and Mrs. Clause, Breakfast for not only the kids but the parents as well, porkies, French toast, muffins, juice, coffee. It was so kind of them to put all that on for their customers and community. After breakfast we took the kids over to the gift table where they got to spend their 5$ Kimps cash (couldn't believe the nice selection of toys to pick from) after that we made our way down to the craft table where the kids got to make a handprint snowman on a painted jar. THANK YOU TO EVERYONE INVOLED, You've made us and our friends returning costumes always!! You've went above and beyond and that shows the type of family owning this Store.
16:06 24 Nov 18
These guys at the grill department were super helpful. I didn’t have my receipt and they were able to look i it up from years ago and process my big green egg warranty Thanks so much, will come back.
12:34 31 Oct 18
Knowledgeable staff is always available to help me find what I need! I am a paint section kind of lady and they're extremely helpful. I did have a hard time getting input while buying my lawnmower a few years ago, but since have had a great experience with renting equipment, and getting the correct parts for my home projects.
18:34 11 Oct 18
One of the best hardware stores in town. Great selection of tools, wide range of grills and lots of small engine equipment. Everyone has always been very friendly and extremely helpful.
19:31 09 Oct 18

17:21 30 Sep 18
Personable service and welcoming to a first time customer. A++ product knowledge and honest Stihl dealer. Doesn't get much better than this!Thank you!
00:20 26 Sep 18
This is the BEST HARDWARE STORE I've ever been in; and I use to own one as a member of Mid-States Distribution and an ACE franchisee. From A to Z they have it and their rental dept is well stocked for the needs of contractors and homeowners alike. The real topper is FIRST CLASS KNOWLEDGEABLE CUSTOMER SERVICE. Give them a try. You won't regret it.
22:19 22 Sep 18
Great place for big and small hardware, rental, and yard needs. Been here several times, great experiences each time. Easy rental process, great employees that can help with your project. Great place to buy larger equipment as well.
