Founded by Forest Smith near the end of the Second World War, Beechwold Hardware was perfectly positioned for the building boom that took place in what was then the far north part of Columbus, Ohio. Many, if not most, of the houses in the Beechwold neighborhood were built in the 1950’s and early 60’s and most of the still has hardware that was purchased at Beechwold Hardware.
In August of 1965 we became Beechwold ACE Hardware. We are the oldest ACE hardware in Columbus. About that time Jack Smith took over from his father and operated two other stores (In Upper Arlington and Grandview) in addition to this location. Beechwold also doubled in size to its current 5000 square feet.
Still family owned, Malcolm Moore (Jack’s son-in-law) is now running the store. We pride ourselves on being a friendly, knowledgeable neighborhood store with the selection of a “big box” store but without all the walking around.
Originally from the Chicago area, Mal attended the University of Utah. After graduating, he moved to Columbus with his future wife, Kathie. His future father-in-law, Jack Smith, began mentoring Mal on the intricacies of the hardware business. Mal now has over 30 years of experience in running a family owned hardware store, taking care of customers (both residential and commercial) and solving their problems.
And Malcolm”s son, Patrick, is looking forward to continuing the story into the future.
