Meet the Owners
Smith Ace Hardware Owners The Dawson Family

Cindy and Allen Dawson, along with some business partners, have owned Smith Ace since the fall of 2002. After the separation of the partnership, they became the sole owners in 2006.

They met in Atlanta in 1989 while both working in management at Home Depot. They married in 1992. After moving around a little bit, the two Southerners (Cindy is from Nashville; Allen is from New Orleans) found their way back to Atlanta and became owners of three Smith Ace Hardware stores.
Cindy and Allen have one son, Taylor, born in 1994.
