In 1918, Joe Boling and C. G. Bettis started a small country store in Cumming, Georgia less than a half mile north of the current store we call ‘ACE Hardware Midway.’ The business was in a small one-bedroom house and named Boling & Bettis General Store. In 1951, the business moved to an 1800 square foot building across the street from the original store where they added gas pumps and a mill to grind wheat for flour and corn for corn meal. An additional 4,000 square feet was added to the store in 1960 to make it the first "buggy pushing" supermarket in Forsyth County. It was a thriving country store for several years where residents could purchase groceries, hardware, building supplies, farm supplies, clothing, toys, and gas.
The decision to join Ace was made in 1974. In 1979 the building supply portion of the business was sold off and became ‘Midway Building Supply.’ It was then that Ace Hardware Midway was born ushering in the Ace Hardware era.
Ace Hardware Midway moved on October 5th, 1984 to a new building at 4947 Hwy 9. A small engine shop was added in 1986 and other additions were made in succeeding years. In 1996 the Ace chain purchased Sibley-Roper Hardware at 2000 Canton Hwy. And then, in 1999 the company built a 24,000 square foot building at 4715 Hammond Industrial Drive to open a third store.
In 2014 current owner Darin Workman and his partners purchased the 3-store chain. 8 Months later they purchased Ace Hardware Woodmont, a 18,000 sqft store in Canton, Ga about 10 miles from the Midway location. In 2016 they purchase Ace Hardware Three Fountains in West Columbia, SC. A 12,000 ft store with a large greenhouse. In 2018 they purchased 3 stores in the Nashville, TN area.

The sale occurred in the summer of 2019 and created a new company, The Helpful Hardware Company, LLC.
