Paul's Progress - June 2020
Well friends, we made it through May! A little sad that month is over but grateful. The weather was absolutely amazing, my dog got more walks than he thought possible and my sister and I had great socially distant birthdays. Now on to June-manji! Coming out of what feels like the longest two months we have ever known, we are heading to the beginning of summer and the longest day of the year. The Summer Solstice is headed our way on June 20th, and then we'll ride the heat all the way through to September or so. No worries though! We are getting all ready for it at our house. We installed new string lighting in our backyard (Happy Birthday to me 🎂 , thanks to my husband :), the new pool toys are all ready, our pool is glistening clean, and our patio misters are all cleaned up and running thanks to some help from  Paul's Ace Hardware ! We've even cranked up that grill a time or ten.

The June Red Hot Buys can help you get your indoor and outdoor spaces in shape too! Check them out, make your lists and shop online at acehardware.com , call ahead and we will gather it and bring it curbside, or head on in to your favorite Paul's Ace Hardware location .

I'm still encouraged and impressed at the efforts our associates and you are doing in our stores to get through this crazy time, ie. our social distancing, washing hands, keeping surfaces clean, distance shields at our registers, curbside pickup, and online shopping and pick up. I think things have gotten a little easier. At the beginning of May, we did have to modify our store hours in a few of our stores due to being short staffed, but at the end of May, we were able to change them back almost to where they were before, so that's encouraging. I know that the traffic on acehardware.com just one weekend in May saw an incredible 1000+% increase. Ace Corporate responded by getting bigger servers and working the site so that it was more manageable. Things haven't been perfect, but we are all doing our best. We are still so proud of our Red-Vested Essential Heroes on our sales floors! And, we are still so proud of you, our amazing customers that are going through this with us with grace and understanding. Thank you for your support. We couldn't do this all without you.❤️ We know you have choices for your home improvement needs and we appreciate you choose us. We love to hear from you so always feel free to drop us a phone call email   or get in touch with us on   Facebook Twitter and   Instagram !  

Sincerely,
Tricia Dauwalder-Luna & The Paul's Helpful Hardware Family
Blood Drive June 13th!
We have had a few blood drives at different Paul's locations the past few months. Once cancelled for Covid, another cancelled because the Bloodmobile broke down 😞 But we are set to do more! The Red Cross had another location cancel their drive so they called on Paul's to help! Our next blood drive will be Saturday, June 13th from 8am-2pm at Paul's Ace Hardware Scottsdale & McDowell. As of this writing there are only 10 spots left - let's fill it up! Reserve your spot now !
Round Up to Donate
You all probably don't realize just how amazing you are. We ask you to round up your purchases to support various charities and you just do. And great things happen. We are still getting the numbers for the most recent round up for American Red Cross, and I'm sure they are amazing, so we will post that on our website when we get them. But I wanted to share with you a letter written by Susan O'Donnell with the Phoenix Children's Hospital Foundation. Pat yourselves on the back will you?

Oh. Em. Gee! I just saw Paul’s Round-up numbers for April. $4,500 is insane….and during a pandemic. Amazing!
Thank you for you continued support. You and the rest of the Paul’s Ace Champions never cease to impress. You all are absolute rock stars and we can’t thank you enough.
We’ve been pretty lucky at PCH that COVID-19 hasn’t impacted our patients in regards to health and safety, but the financial hit from canceling elective surgeries for over a month was over $30 million. We’ve had to cancel or postpone events and have had many partners cancel or postpone campaigns; so, to see $4,500 raised in the month of April, a month that was heartbreaking as a fundraising, truly is a blessing.
If you would, please share with the Paul’s team how grateful we are for them. Not only that, but they have become front line heroes in keeping our country going and we are just so proud of our partnership with Ace Hardware.  Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

With a Heart Full of Gratitude,

Susan O’Donnell

Big Changes Coming to Paul's Ace Hardware Gilbert!
There's a big face lift coming to our Gilbert & Baseline location starting about mid June and it's going to be awesome. We have already somewhat started with some new pretty colors on the walls - much prettier than the stark white is has been for going on 13 years. Soon, we will be moving all of our aisles and realigning departments to make the shopping experience much more convenient for you. We will also be increasing our offerings of outdoor living items, BBQ's and accessories and outdoor power items like Stihl and EGO. Our paint department is also getting a slight makeover so you can more easily shop our premium lines of paint - Benjamin Moore, Dunn Edwards, Clark & Kensington and Royal.
All of this work should take about six weeks. We are currently marking down a bunch of items to make room for new stuff so head on down for some great deals. The end result is just going to be amazing Gilbert - we're so excited for you!!!
Look for the Signs!
Order online at acehardware.com or call us direct and we will meet you curbside with your order. We have a special spot in our parking lots just for you to call or text us when you get there!
Happy Father's Day!!
It's Dad's turn this month as Father's Day is right around the corner - coming up on June 21st this year! So, Happy Father's Day out there to all the dad's, stepdad's, granddad's and all others taking on the 'dad-duty'. Anyone can be a father, but it takes a special someone to be a dad, so hats off to ya! We sincerely hope you enjoy your day :)
Get Your Patio Ready!
I LOVE to talk about my Aeromist patio misting system, quite simply because I LOVE mine and think everyone should have one. And you can get everything you need right at your local valley Paul's.
We stock two 'starter kits' to get you going, one 6' and one 12'. What you do with it from there is completely up to you. The whole system is fairly easy to install. A drill and a ladder is really all you should need to get going.
The Aeromist nylon tubing is rated for up to 1000psi, so you have the option to install a pump to your system to add that professional touch if you wanted. We have a pump for the misting system you see pictured and it is so worth it! It is a quiet and efficient way to get the most out of your misting system. (Pumps are available via a quick and easy special order) .
With a plan, a kit, and a couple of hours on a Saturday morning, you could be sitting comfortably distant on your patio that afternoon enjoying the fruits of your labor - and I will be so happy for you!
