Yeah I work at an Ace in Naperville, IL

I've been there for over 6 months and I'm likeing it.

I love loading up a car up with 30 bags of mulch on a freezing cold day while a two guys stand by and watch me do all the work. Naperville is full of lazy ass bums. Gotta love when people say "you don't come home with me to unload this do you?" as if I hadn't heard that one ever. Luckly the job isn't as bad as I'm makeing it sound lol.

Amazing, there is an Ace Hardware community! I've been working at the Satellite Beach Ace Hardware in Central Florida for what seems like forever. I wondered if there was an Ace community or not, but if there wasn't one I was going to make it.


Yay for being a Helpful Hardware Guy!

likely lesbians come in today to thank me for my help getting thier generator [I sold to them] last week during a power outage.

Atypical of Coleman Powermate the owners manual did not match the product in the box.

last week they went thru quite a bit of how to get it started, what do I do to get power to my house, where do I put the gas, oil [how much do I put], where is the on switch, .... junk like that.

no less than 4 phone calls last Sat.

Today they came in and thanked me for helping them so much cause the power was out [due to the local storms] for 4 days for them. They were able to actually get the generator up and running last Sat. and were happy for having spent the bucks for it.

It is so sweet when a customer comes back and thanks you for special service given to them during a crisis situation for the customer. X-posted to My LJ.

I just found this comm. There is actually a comm on LJ for us Helpful Hardware Folks?

I have been with ACE Hardware [local stores] since 1989.

I sorta feel empowered by the clout ACE gives us with its buying power.

I work for a small 5 store chain of family owned hardware stores. Always was ACE prolly always will be ACE.

Found out with this last San Diego show that our stores are in the top 1/2% of 1% of fully intergrated computer JIT ordering and inventory management. In fact WE are [considered] a beta site for Activant ["Triad"] windows POS and EAGLE software.

So there is a LJ=comm for us! Wow nifty.

Hope this is a place to help build up others and not gripe about ACE.

yeah! i am so happy that there is an Ace community! how sweet!

I've been working at Stone's Ace Hardware in Utica, MI for about 1 year 2 months. My sister started working as a cashier just three days ago. My boyfriend also works there (we've been going out for 1 year a few weeks, he's worked there for 1 year and 4 months).

I LOVE it there! Pimps-R-Us should be the subtitle for our Ace.

This is cool... Here are all the relationships between everyone who works in my Ace:
Previous owners: Ken Stone's father & Ken Stone's brother
Owner: Ken Stone --> married to Monique
Cashier: Julie (me) --> dating stock: Justin
Cashier: Julie (me again) --> sister with Laura
Stock brothers --> Matt, Dan, Greg
Plumbing manager: Aaron --> brother to cashier: Amy
Electrical: Brian --> uncle to manager: Steve
Manager: Edwin --> son Brandon used to work here
Both former employees who dated: Ed & Ashley

Our store has so much history and it's soooo cool! I'm going to miss it when I'm up at Ferris State :(
