Acme Lock is a family owned, small business that began in 1933. Matt Woods & Laura Woods are the current owners.
When Steve’s grandmother, Florence married her husband, Herman Rief they owned & worked at Acme Lock for numerous years until the late 1970’s. Chuck & Beverly Woods, Steve’s parents took over Acme Lock at that point.
In the 1990’s, Acme Lock opened a new location in downtown Covington, KY: Acme Lock & Safe. Most of the car work and most of the safe sales are located at the Covington store.
Chuck & Beverly Woods retired in 2007, at which time, Steve and Laura Woods took over Acme Lock.
Since Acme Lock’s inception, it had been located in the same location, 139 East Court Street in downtown Cincinnati for 74 years. On the Cincinnati Reds’ Opening Day 2007, a fire forced Acme Lock to relocate to the building around the corner to 925 Main Street.
When Acme Lock moved to its current location on Main Street, it also opened a much needed hardware store in Downtown Cincinnati. It is a Trust Worthy Hardware store in addition to being a locksmith shop.
