Paul's Progress - December 2021
Hi Tricia!
Wasn't it just January like a minute ago?! Man this year has flown by for me, how about for you? We kinda needed it to so we could get further away from 2020, right? haha

I thoroughly enjoyed Thanksgiving (hope you did as well), and we did get some of our decorations up, but I realized I still have a LOT of shopping left to do, because, well, I haven't done any yet :) That's ok though, I'm sure all of the great deals coming up in December at Paul's Ace Hardware are going to help me finish all of my shopping! There's always a lot of cool stuff to shop for that you may even have to employ the 'one for you, one for me' method of shopping... just a thought!

Decorating and holiday-ing are in full swing and our month long Red Hot Buys will keep you on the right track. And if you start to sway, then our Last Minute Gift Guide sale coming up will be sure to be a big help. 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 we get to close out and put a bow on 2021 🙌, we thank you all for your continued grace, understanding and support throughout this year. Our Red Vested Heroes have worked tirelessly this year to provide the service and convenience you are looking for. We couldn't have made it these 65 years without YOU.❤️ 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
Show us your LIGHTS!
Round Up to Donate
We have asked you all year to open your hearts and your wallets to various charities and organizations we support each month, and you never disappoint. Thank you to you all, the most amazing customers on the planet. It is so very much appreciated. November's Round Up at the register was all for our own local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Phoenix Children's Hospital. If you've ever needed to be there or use one of their satellite facilities, you know how much of a top notch hospital they really are. We are so LUCKY to have them in our neighborhoods. I think that you all hit a record this month. You raised an incredible $11,546.65! See how YOUR Paul's location did here! As always, Paul's matches 10% of the donations. Another incredible month that you should ALL be very proud of. Thank you so much ❤️

We will continue to accept Round-Up Donations at our registers for Phoenix Children's Hospital throughout December. Let's see if we can beat November!

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!
Tempe Community Holiday Lights
Paul's Ace Hardware is proud to be this year's sponsor again for the Tempe Community Action Agency's Holiday Lights program. We are thrilled to be a part of lighting up and bringing some fun and festive holiday cheer to homebound Tempe residents. This Saturday, December 4th volunteers will disperse across Tempe to hang holiday lights on the homes of TCAA clients with physical challenges or are unable to hang them themselves. Then in January, volunteers will then return to remove and store the lights and decorations. This event starts at 8am at the Escalante Community Center 150 E. Orange St., Tempe, AZ 85281. If you are interested in volunteering, please contact Deb Bacorn at DebraB@tempeaction.org.
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!
Local Artisan Market @ Paul's!
Join us for our Next Local Artisan Market on Saturday, December 18th from 10am-2pm at our Gilbert location. We feature local crafters, artisans and vendors. 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!
Shop Local!
Shopping local does so much for the communities we all live in. For every $100 spent locally, roughly $68 stays directly in the community. When you shop at your favorite 3rd generation locally owned and operated Paul's Ace Hardware, know that your purchases pay the salaries of close to 200 of your neighbors, the rent and mortgages to local landlords and banks, and we are able to give back to local nonprofits, community groups, and local businesses. How awesome is that.
Think. Shop. Buy. Local!
Customer Comments
Chris recently wrote this review on Google for our Payson location and it really made us smile :)
"This place is great. Friendly and knowledgeable staff who get to know your name, your business and what you’re there for. Not only that they know where the stuff is in their store and probably have someone working there that can tell you how to use it. I am a customer for life and I do currently recommend them to a lot of people and don’t see that changing any time."
Thanks for the review Chris! It's reviews like these that remind us why we do what we do. :)
If you get great service, shout it out on your favorite platform and make sure to mention your favorite Paul's Family Member!
