Summer is the perfect time to host gatherings and if you’ve been wanting to give your house that extra edge, a pop of colour or make your space feel more lush green, we’ve got good news for you. If you’re driving to Doha Festival City or Ikea, save some time (and energy) to check out ACE as well, an exciting home-improvement and lifestyle store. The brand has opened its first store in Qatar and with more than 25,000 sq ft feet of retail space, you’ll find every imaginable product from command strips and potted plants to large outdoor gazebos and barbecues.
The store is easy to navigate with low aisles and massive boards stating product categories displayed on top. Customers get access to a wide range of products in four key categories – Do-it-Yourself (DIY) and Hardware, Outdoor Living, Home Improvement and Home Living.
You’ll find all the world-renowned brands here including Weber, Karcher, Black & Decker, Craftsman Valspar, Bosch, Sentry, Dewalt and many more. ACE also has its own exclusive range of products: Worx power tools, Addis home products and Broil King. The store features more than 14,000 home improvement and lifestyle products and to us, that’s 14,000 more things we want for our homes. (Okay, maybe 10,000 is enough). We particularly like the exclusive Gardens section where you can walk in to a beautiful in-store garden centre displaying plants and accessories to create your perfect green retreat. Some of the potted plants are very reasonably priced, too. Although, you might want to take a gardening lesson, or four, before subjecting those innocent plants to your custody.
The store also offers a range of services including paint mixing, key cutting, free timber cutting on wood bought-in store, repotting, home delivery and installation and click and collect. If you head there soon, you can still catch some of the products in selected categories on special prices.
Open Sun-Wed 9am-10pm; Thu, Sat 9am-midnight; Fri 9am-11.30am, 1pm-midnight. Doha Festival City (4424 2444).
