I usually follow this rule taught to me by my mother, "If you can't say something nice, don't say anything" but this has a humorous side that was so funny it trumped that rule... so I'll first say, I found an Ace Hardware that is by far the best retail store of ANY kind (6959 E 22nd St Tucson, AZ 85710) this story is NOT about that Ace.
So yesterday I'm heading home from work and I remembered I needed some PVC glue, so I figured I'll stop by the Ace that's right on my way home... well it closed just before I got there, (I got to see them turn off the lights and lock the door) Now I'm not gonna be mad about about a retail store that closes at 7pm on a Tuesday night, but I can't say that I was happy about it. But as I was walking back to my vehicle, I notice a new giant banner on the front window sporting their new slogan ...
"Going to Ace is just like going to your neighbor."
Yep, they TOTALLY nailed it this time, because my neighbor doesn't know jack-crap about hardware and he NEVER sells ANYTHING that I need! HAHAHA!
