Paul's Progress - September 2021
Hi Tricia!
Happy September to you! Not only is it weekend eve, it's Labor Day Weekend Eve!!! Cheers to you and to (hopefully) some relaxation time for you, It is "Labor Day" after all. What are your plans? Maybe a little stay-cation and lounge by the pool, or a trip to one of our amazing lakes, or perhaps heading up north? Anything to keep cool! I keep thinking we've had the last days of triple digits and then that temp creeps back up again. We've finally had a great monsoon season with LOTS of rain, but I'm so ready for Fall! My second favorite time of year officially starts on Wednesday, September 22, 2021 at 12:21 pm MST  - not that I am excited or counting down or anything :) Then, the Holidays will be here! It's time to get those projects done that just didn't sound fun in this ridiculous heat AND those seasonal to-do's like planting your winter grass. Let us help you! 

There's always plenty of reasons to shop your favorite Paul's location. No matter how big and no matter how small, Paul's Ace Hardware has it all! Along with some awesome month-long savings, I'm sure you can find several opportunities for us to help you. Check out the September Red Hot Buys, make your lists and head on in to your favorite Paul's location to get the best help in the valley! 

While we always love to see you in person, you can always shop from the comfort of your home or office online at www.acehardware.com or on your Ace Hardware app for delivery or pick up. Or just simply give us a call! We're happy to gather your order and deliver it curbside. You can even order your paint online - how convenient is that!

As always, we thank you all for your continued business and support. ❤️ We know you have choices for your home improvement needs and we appreciate you choose 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 on FacebookTwitter and Instagram!

Sincerely,
Tricia Dauwalder-Luna & The Paul's Helpful Hardware Family
Ace Handyman Services
We are so excited to announce the availability of Ace Handyman Services for YOU! They are a white glove handyman service, focusing on the 'Honey Do' list of projects around your house. They can get jobs booked within a week. Based on the franchise's 20 years of experience they have a good idea of how long these jobs will take. They can give an estimate over the phone and charge time and material once at the job site. Their craftsmen will call the night before the job, send an "on my way" text notification the day of, communicate with you throughout the job and offer a one year warranty on their work. Check it out today!
It's Fall Ya'll!
Well, almost. I mean it's close enough to say it out loud right? :) We've had an incredible monsoon season, and now fall is really right around the corner. And that means its also time to make your neighbors jealous of your lush, green, beau-ti-ul winter lawn! Yes, it is time to get started or at least start planning.
In order to be successful, it's most important to begin preparation for overseeding in mid-September to mid-October. During that time, gradually lower the mowing heights over successive mowing cycles until reaching 3/4" height with a rotary mower or 1/2" with a reel mower.

Round Up to Donate
For the month of August our valley stores accepted round up donations at the registers for Drowning Prevention Coalition of Arizona and our Payson location accepted round up donations for Tonto Rim Search & Rescue. You all raised an incredible $7249.20 for the DPCA and an amazing $1903.90 for Tonto Rim Search & Rescue! All of which Paul's will match 10% to donate. (See store totals here.) Yet another incredible month that you should ALL be very proud of. Thank you so much ❤️

For September we are focusing on some wonderful non-profits that do amazing work with developmentally disabled of all ages. Each of these organizations were blown away by this generous opportunity and we are thrilled to help! See what non-profit YOUR Paul's location is collecting donations for here. The Believe I Can Academy has already taken a field trip to our Tempe @ Rural store - check out their Facebook❤️

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!
Truck Driver Appreciation Week
Truck drivers are in short supply and without them, we wouldn’t be able to do what we do. Not only are they in short supply, you can imagine, the demand has been incredible. Just about every aspect of our lives is made possible because a truck driver delivered the goods that we all need. National Truck Driver Appreciation Week is a great time for us to pay respect and THANK all professional truck drivers for their commitment and hard work doing this most demanding and important job - delivering our goods and resources safely, securely and on time.
We will be giving our truck drivers we come in contact with a big THANK YOU and we encourage you to do the same!

Thank you Truck Drivers!

We sell BBQs and smokers, so why not ground beef, hot dogs, brats and STEAKS!?! We now stock a line of meat at our Gilbert & Baseline location. Agridme is a farm to table beef company, raising Angus based cattle. They source yearling cattle from their partner farms and finish them all on one of their two farms in Kansas. It is then distributed to us locally. They raise grass fed, grain finished as well and 100% grass fed and finished cattle. Come and get dinner!
Remembering 9/11
It's been 20 years now since that September morning and honestly it feels as if it were yesterday. I can still remember exactly what I was doing as I'm sure you can too. In honor of the 2,996 lives lost that day, Paul's will be handing out small United States flags on Friday, September 11. Please stop by any of our 8 locations to get yours and display it with pride and remembrance.

Customer Comments
rob recently wrote this review on Google for one of our locations and highlighted our Paul's Family member Brad:

"In an extensive effort to find a specific type of fencing I eventually found Brad. Although even he could not find what I was looking for Brad was the most helpful associate I have met in a while if ever. Even after knowing he wasn't going to make a penny of me Brad continued to give me helpful advice. I will continue to use this Ace"

Thanks for taking the time rob! We're very lucky to have Brad in our Family of Hardware stores!
