PROGRESS 2014: Roseville Suburban Ace
Spring is in the air at Roseville Suburban Ace
Suburban Ace Hardware
1930 Lexington Ave.
Though it might not feel like it, spring is just around the corner at Roseville Suburban Ace Hardware Store, at the intersection of Roselawn and Lexington avenues.
This year, Ace will offer an expanded flower selection including hanging baskets and flats of flowers, says owner Mike Johnson. And the store already has colorful racks of seeds in stock.
A full section of soils, mulch, grass seed and lawn care products as well as an expanded bird food department with a variety of foods and feeders will also be available.
Customer Bill Hagstrom, who recently stopped in to buy food for the birds in his backyard, says he likes to shop at Ace “because it’s convenient, close to home and has a great selection of food for birds.”
And with spring and summer in mind, it’s important to prepare for lawn mowing, notes Johnson, who suggests customers bring their lawn mowers in for tune-ups so they can beat the rush and be set to go when their grass is ready to cut.
Also in preparation for summer, customers can order outdoor living furniture and grills from acehardware.com and have it delivered free to Suburban Ace in Roseville.
Besides flowers, bird food and lawn care items, Ace has expanded its paint selection this year by carrying Valspar and offering a broader selection of colors and quality for his customers. Ace is also selling Clark + Kensingston paints, rated No. 1 by Consumer Reports in 2013 “for overall finish, ability to hide and more.” It’s paint and primer all in one, making painting faster and easier.
Ace also has a vast variety of products including Craftsman tools. “We’re well-stocked,” Johnson says.” You can find what you need, and it’s a fun and friendly place to shop, seven days a week.”
And anytime customers visit the store, they will be greeted by Ace’s friendly and helpful staff. Perhaps it’s the knowledgeable service as well as the variety of products that is drawing more women into the store. An increasing number of women are doing their own repairs these days, Johnson says.
Customer Katie Lombardi recently stopped in for new windshield wiper blades. She says when she was there previously, Luis Saybe helped her, and he was so nice that she came back. On this visit, Saybe headed out into the cold to figure out what size blades Johnson needed, and then installed them for her on the spot.
Saybe is bilingual – a huge benefit to Spanish speakers who stop in the store looking for help.
For anyone, Roseville Suburban Ace is “a fun place to shop,” says Johnson. “It’s different from shopping at a big box. Too many big stores just care about profits, not people. At Ace. there’s more personal service and we make you feel you are part of the family. If you have a good experience, you’ll come back and you’ll tell your friends.”
