SMITHFIELD – Rocky’s Ace Hardware, which has a store in Smithfield as well as Massachusetts communities such as Fairhaven and Fall River, now offers online shopping, the company announced.
“We want to stay true to our commitment of being our customers’ local hardware store, but we also recognize that today’s consumer also sometimes wants the convenience of online shopping,” said Rocky’s Ace Hardware President and CEO Rocco Falcone in a press release.
Customers can browse inventory; get details on sales, specials and local events; and put in orders for in-store pickup, the company said. They can also redeem Ace Rewards online.
Home delivery within a certain store radius is expected to be added at a later time.
