Paul's Progress - November 2021
Hi Tricia!
What kind of key can't open doors? A tur-key! Bahahahah Well maybe it's a good thing that I'm in the hardware business and not trying to sell jokes somewhere :)

It's not jokes folks, it's totally official! We are now in the Holiday Season! It might not feel like it just yet, with the gorgeous weather we are having (LOVING IT) but there's really just a few short weeks until Thanksgiving! Kind of unbelievable, but I can't wait.

It's time to start decorating and holiday-ing and we have plenty of great deals in our month long Red Hot Buys to help you get started. And then there are even MORE great deals in our Thanksgiving Sale coming up! So check those out, make your lists and head in to your favorite Paul's Ace Hardware neighborhood store. You're always welcome to shop online at www.acehardware.com for delivery or pick up or give us a call! We're happy to gather your order and deliver it curbside. Of course we love to see your smiling faces so feel free to head on in to your favorite Paul's Ace Hardware location. :)

As always, we thank you all for your continued business and support. ❤️ We know YOU are the reason we get to be in your neighborhoods for these past 65 years. Thank you for choosing us again and again. We love to hear from you so always feel free to drop us a phone callemail or get in touch with us online!

Sincerely,
Tricia Dauwalder-Luna & The Paul's Helpful Hardware Family
DeWalt/Craftsman Events This Week!
Join us at both our Tempe @ Priest and Scottsdale and McDowell stores this Thursday, November 4th from 8am-1pm. We will have representatives from DeWalt on site to show you all you need to know about your favorite power tools. There will be event day only specials and other giveaways! See you there!
Round Up to Donate
October's Round Up at the registers was all about a couple of local non-profits that provide much needed places for some special kids to be :) Each of these organizations were blown away by this generous opportunity and we are thrilled to help! Our 7 Valley locations collected round up donations for an organization located in Tempe called Lily's Pad, a hyper clean facility for immunocompromised children to play like typical kids. Our Payson location collected round up donations for Payson Community Kids, a dedicated summer & after school program for kids in and around Payson. See how YOUR Paul's location did below! Check out the totals here! As always, Paul's will matches 10% of the donations. Another incredible month that you should ALL be very proud of. Thank you so much ❤️

We will be accepting Round-Up Donations at our registers for the remainder of the year for our local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Phoenix Children's Hospital. We are so fortunate to have this top-notch hospital in our backyard providing much needed care to our children.

This is all completely voluntary. All you have to do is click "yes" or "no" on the keypad when you use your credit or debit card at the registers. And if you want to donate more, we can take that too. And remember, Paul's will match 10% of all that is raised. Let's see what we can do together!
Ace Handyman Gift Cards!
What a GREAT gift! Ace Handyman Services North Scottsdale & Fountain Hills now has gift certificates for the holidays! They are available in half-day or full-day package certificates. A half-day will give the owner a Craftsman for 4 hours, and a full-day will give the owner a Craftsman for 8 hours. These gift certificates would make a great holiday gift! Call the office direct at 480.462.2602 for more information!
World's Finest Chocolate for Sure!
Since August 2019, Ace retailers across the US have had record sales of World’s Finest Chocolate by purchasing over 2.3 Million bars! A portion of every bar purchased goes to the area's local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, which is Phoenix Children's Hospital for Arizona. In six short years of Ace Hardware stores across the nation selling World's Finest Chocolate bars, over 10 Million bars have been purchased, resulting in donations of over $5M to CMN! Come in to your local favorite Paul's Ace Hardware for some chocolate and support Phoenix Children's Hospital!
Holiday Cooking!
Thanksgiving Dinner - yummmm
If you have been reading my newsletters year after year, you probably know how much I LOVE this time of year, especially the chance to make the turkey for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I personally use a roaster oven handed down from my mom (or I might have just taken it at one point? I can't remember but thanks mom! haha) It's so nice and easy. Just plug it in, put your turkey in (breast down in you don't care about looks, makes the white meat that much juicier - put some butter pats under the skin, a little poultry seasoning and you're set) and get on with the rest of your meal preparation, stopping by to baste every once in a while of course. We might just try our turkey on my husband's Traeger.... If you're more of a deep-fried turkey family, we can help you there too! We have turkey fryers and peanut oil at all of our locations. Just make sure to let us know how they turned out :) Of course for the rest of your holiday baking and cooking, you should check us out. Whether you are a pumpkin bread aficionado (like me) candy maker, cookie baker or just flat out a real darn good cook, we have what you need. I took a cooking class once and the chef was complaining he couldn't find butchers twine anywhere - well we have that too. So get what you need and get to cooking!
If you have any holiday recipes you'd like to share, I would love to put one in December's newsletter! Send it to me here!
Local Artisan Market @ Paul's!
Join us on Small Business Saturday, November 27th from 10am-2pm at our Gilbert location for our Local Artisan Market featuring local crafters, artisans and vendors. We're so excited! You have to come check it out! Check out the webpage here for more upcoming dates!
If YOU are a Local Artisan and wish to participate, contact Carol!
Happy Veteran's Day

Thanking our Veterans is near and dear to our hearts here at Paul's. Paul himself, pictured here, served in WWII. Veterans Day is a great time for all of us to extend our biggest and warmest "Thank You's" to our past and present Military members. 
We at Paul's would also like to remind our Military customers that Paul's Ace Hardware stores proudly offers a 10% discount* to all active military and military veterans as a small token of our appreciation. See a sales associate at any of our locations for details.
We are all indebted to you for your service and sacrifices and cannot thank you enough.
Special Thank You's go to all of our associates who have served AND another special one to my favorite veteran, my husband. Thank you all!
Customer Comments
Mike recently wrote this review on Yelp for our Scottsdale on McDonald location and it made our day :)

"Man, I'm new to AZ, and was excited to see a hardware store where people really know their stuff. I was in there looking for a specific screw for my desk. It had to be just about right. I went in, and a gentleman was at the front, I believe his name was Dan or something like that. He was younger but very knowledgeable. He was friendly, and when I said I was new to AZ, he welcomed me and hoped to see me more often. 
We walked over to the bolt area, and took a little time walking around. After checking several boxes, we found the one that would work. I am not the most knowledgeable when it comes to hardware or home repair in general. Coming into this Ace has me comfortable knowing I can ask questions and get answers. I was able to get in and out quickly and without issue, which is something I really appreciate! No need for the big boxes when I have an Ace like this. Thank you!"

Thanks for the review Mike! We're so lucky to have such an awesome associates and an awesome selection of nuts and bolts in our Family of Hardware stores!

If you get great service, shout it out on your favorite platform and make sure to mention your favorite Paul's Family Member!
