Arizona area Ace Hardware stores are just finishing up their “It pays to maintain” sales, which feature low prices, along with a step-by-step program to maintain a healthy winter lawn in an arid state. The eight-page circular also features sales on Royal paint, Craftsman tools, and all the tools and materials needed for fall prep, all while pushing the brand’s message of "get in, get help, get on with your life."
• Scorpion killer for $8.99; • Remington electric chainsaw for $34.99; and • Black & Decker pruning combo pack for $9.99.
The Skinny: Sharing space
The co-op’s brand partnerships with Craftsman and Benjamin Moore are reflected in the pages. The circular splits page three down the middle between Essence and Royal paint sales and Benjamin Moore’s $20 mail-in rebate. Craftsman tools share space with Ace knives, Shop Vac wet/dry vacs and Arrow nailers.
