The lease was for 250,000 square feet, according to Crain’s Chicago Business. For the first time, Ace’s more than 1,100 Oak Brook-based employees will be housed in a single building. Employees will enjoy amenities such as an onsite cafeteria, fitness center, outdoor terraces, access to walking trails and an indoor, heated parking garage. There are more than 5,500 locally owned and operated Ace stores in roughly 65 countries.
