Cappel's Ace Hardware

Doug Cappel grew up in Atlantic, Iowa, and graduated from the University of Iowa. Shortly after, he married Jen Cappel. After moving around different spots in the country, they settled down in Des Moines and had two kids, Maddie and Alex.

Jen is currently a resource teacher at Des Moines Christian School where she has been working for the past 13 years. Maddie is a Junior at the University of Iowa. Alex is a Senior at Des Moines Christian School.

Cappel's Ace Hardware is very much a family business, and at times it can be all hands on deck to make sure that your neighborhood hardware store is ready for holidays, inclement weather, and all of your other project needs.
