This isn’t your typical hardware store; Menegon’s Ace Hardware is one of the most fun and comfortable hardware stores to visit in Lake Tahoe. The Menegon family, which has owned an Ace Hardware store in Napa Valley since 1955, recently expanded to the south shore. They restored the store to make it a go-to hardware store in Lake Tahoe. It was already a place for customers to purchase and receive helpful advice on hardware, plumbing, tools, grills and garden. However, the Menegon family added a housewares section that provides visitors with pots, pans, knives, toasters, microwaves and any other items that are needed in a kitchen. The renovation also provided for a state-of-the-art paint department that is one of the best in Lake Tahoe.

The family atmosphere makes shopping at a hardware store more of a relaxed experience. Where customers might walk in knowing nothing about the tools they need to purchase, Menegon’s provides helpful associates who welcome questions and enjoy giving advice about the many components of hardware.
