Paul's Progress - September 2022
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 lounge by the pool, or a trip to one of our amazing lakes, or perhaps heading up north? Anything to keep cool! It has been so incredibly HOT! Gah! We've had a pretty great monsoon season with LOTS of rain, but I'm so so so ready for Fall! My second favorite time of year officially starts on Wednesday, September 22, 2022 at 6:03pm pm MST  - I am totally excited AND counting the days! 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, including your custom colored paint! You could also just simply give us a call! We're happy to gather your order and deliver it curbside.

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
Local Artisan Market @ Paul's is back!
Last year was so much fun, we're doing it again! It's the monthly Local Artisan Market at Paul's Ace Hardware at Gilbert and Baseline! We had a great group of LOCAL artisans, crafters and vendors last year and we are so looking forward to them and more! Our first market will be on September 24th from 8-12. Mark the dates on your calendars and Support LOCAL!
It's Fall Ya'll!
Well, almost. I mean it's close enough to say it out loud right? :) We've had a great monsoon season, and believe it or not, 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 our very own Children's Miracle Network hospital, Phoenix Children's Hospital. You all raised a total of $10,210.84!! All of which Paul's will match 10% to donate. The final number is HUGE! 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 in our neighborhoods. We are thrilled to help and excited to see what all YOU can help us raise! See what non-profit YOUR Paul's location is collecting donations for here.

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
Just about every aspect of our lives is made possible because a truck driver delivered the goods that we all need. There aren't as many people choosing trucking at their profession the last couple of years and the demand has been incredible. They work so hard! 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 very own Paul's Family truck drivers and truck drivers we come in contact with a big THANK YOU and we encourage you to do the same!

Thank you Truck Drivers!
New @ Paul's
We sell BBQs and smokers, rubs and sauces to get you fed right now, but how about a Freeze Dryer to get you fed in a month or even 25 years from now!? We now stock Harvest Right Freeze Dryers at our Fountain Hills location! I gotta tell you, freeze dried ice cream is very good! Check out the video and head on in to take a look!
Remembering 9/11
It's been over 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 Sunday, September 11. Please stop by any of our 8 locations to get yours and display it with pride and remembrance.

Customer Comments
Han recently wrote this review on Yelp for one of our locations and highlighted our Paul's Family member Chaz (pictured here on the right, and yes! He is Stihl certified!):

"Came to get some keys made and some electrical parts for my rental. Was helped by Chaz who was super helpful and explained all the additional services this ace offers. As I was leaving my car battery died and Chaz saved the day by giving me a jump with his own car. Top notch service!"

Thanks for taking the time Han! We're very lucky to have Chaz 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!
