Hi Tricia!
Happy Happy New Year!! Welcome 2023! It's another new year and we have January here just starting up! I hope you're making the most of it. This rain has been great for us and the rest of January looks like it's going to be just beautiful, it's is why we live here right? I hope you get a chance to get out and enjoy it. I also hope those new year's resolutions or goals are under way. You can always turn to us for help and inspiration :)

You can start with this month's Red Hot Buys. There's some great deals on organizing, then some deals on some tools you might have had your eyes on - take a look, then make your lists and head in to your favorite Paul's Ace Hardware neighborhood store.

Round Up to Donate
November and December's Round Up at the register was all for our own local Children's Miracle Network Hospital, Phoenix Children's Hospital. We are so incredibly LUCKY to have them in our neighborhoods. I am wow'd by this number as you seriously hit an all time record for 2022 by raising a phenomenal $12,750.07! Add in the Paul's 10% match and we are going to be able to send a check for $14,025.08! See how YOUR Paul's location did here! An absolute incredible month that you should ALL be very proud of.
You should also be proud of 2022! Just from rounding up your purchases this past year, you helped us raise a grand total of $123,440.35 for the various charities and organizations in our neighborhoods! We are humbled to have the BEST customers on the planet. Thank you so much ❤️

Protect the P's!
I'll be the first to say it, I have an incredibly small personal temperature comfort level, like within a couple degrees, just ask my husband. Maybe it's the effects of being a desert rat my entire life, who knows. But it really does get COLD here, so don't forget to be ready to take some winter precautions and protect the four P's:
People - cover up when you go outside!
Plants - bring those sensitive potted plants inside or even to your garage against an interior wall for warmth. Cover your outdoor plants with fabric. Frost cloth works great. Do not cover them with a tarp or plastic drop cloths. Extra mulch also helps keep some ground warmth.
Pets - bring your pets inside. If it's too cold for you, it's too cold for them.
Pipes - wrap exposed faucets or pipes, consider those in unheated crawl spaces or attics. And yes, pipes have been known to freeze here :)

Here's some bonus info to protect those citrus trees!

We recently received a store survey with this feedback for our Tempe Priest & Broadway location and of course it made our day! It's a great reminder of why we do what we do, provide solutions to our customers :)
