Livingston’s Ace Hardware store has a new manger.

Livingston native Joe Chapman said he is excited to bring his expertise to the team after having worked for 18 years as the system store director at Albertsons grocery store.


Chapman got his start in bagging groceries in the grocery store that was previously in the Ace Hardware building as a senior in high school, and worked there from 1979 to 1991 before moving over to Albertsons.

Chapman has been the manager of Livingston’s Ace store for five weeks. “I’m loving it — it’s awesome,” he said in an interview Thursday.
