Since its inception in 1965 as an animal health retailer, Key-Aid Inc. has based its foundation on offering quality products backed by superior customer service. Even in the early days of operating out of a chicken house on a Mennonite farm, Key-Aid, or "Cow Aid" in PA Dutch, placed a strong emphasis on serving the members of the community. As the business grew this emphasis remained, ultimately leading Key-Aid to join the Ace Hardware family and the opening of the current business location along West Main Street in Ephrata in 1991. This partnership and location allowed Key-Aid to better serve its customers with over 11,000 square feet of retail space and expanded offerings in hardware, lawn and garden, and paint.
Today, Key-Aid Ace Hardware is owned by Mike and Elliott Pfautz, and has become a fixture in the local community with helpful associates and a large and diverse product offering. We invite you to visit us between 8am and 8pm Monday through Friday and between 8am and 5pm on Saturday.
