I think most ACE, Do it Best, and Tru Value hardware stores are still locally owned franchises but some have gotten very large and could be corporate stores.
Where I used to live the store switched from being an ACE to DiB store but they had the Benjamin Moore, Pratt & Lambert and some designer brands. I guess they had some stuff labeled for them but I never used it. They had extremely knowlegable paint department staff and did a substantial contractor business.
