Well, that's a broader discussion, hardly ACE specific.  Then it matters
only
that there is a store lookup:
http://www.acehardware.com/mystore/index.jsp?store=00914
Not that it's a franchise or cooperative.

With the URL one can argue that no other details are needed.


----------------------------------------------------------
The website URL checker over at:
http://keepright.ipax.at/
Processes a lot of chain store lookup URL's.  It is helpful at times, as it
alerts to closed stores in many cases.
However when the base URL changes, thousands of links can go bad all at
once... and it takes a mechanical
edit to fix it properly. The keepright checker has been blocked from
scanning by several hosts, but it could
be smarter about realizing the chain store pattern and throttling back.
