Meanley & Son Ace Hardware

It is hard to miss — with the unique brick-front exterior and large windows filled with everything from gourmet cookware to gardening tools, Meanley & Son sits comfortably at 7756 Girard Avenue, as it has for the past 63 years. Bob Meanley, owner of Meanley & Son Ace Hardware continues the tradition his family started decades ago. Bob’s grandfather, Tom Meanley established the business in 1948 with his son William and wife Nackey, the daughter of Elizabeth B. Scripps. Passed down over the generations, the family business remains just that.

Carrying all the classic hardware store inventory one would expect, from tools, cleaning supplies, light bulbs, batteries, glues, fasteners and all the whatjamacallits in between, Meanley & Son also strives to bring La Jollan’s the latest and greatest new products. This year, Meanley’s introduced Mythic Paint — the only truly non-toxic paint on the market. Meanley’s also boasts an impressive selection of top-of-the-line gourmet cookware, brands like All-Clan, Le Creuset and Swiss Diamond.

Meanley and Son credits their long time success to an unfaltering dedication to customer service. It is the wonderful and loyal customers that keep this longstanding La Jolla Landmark alive and well.
