Newsroom: 2017 Annual Reports and Financials

April 2, 2018

One need not read or watch too much of the news to understand thechallenges that exist at retail. And to be certain, it was a challenging year for most brick-and-mortar retailers with an estimated 6,700 store closings in the U.S. alone. But against that dismal backdrop stands the humbled swagger of the local underdog – the Ace retailer. While much of the retail world was whacked in the head with declining transactions, employee terminations and store closings, you extended four streaks that I find to be both impressive and critical to our future. Ace retailers have now enjoyed:
• Five years in a row of increased customer traffic
• Six years in a row of net new store growth
• Eight years in a row of increased same-store sales and same-store gross profit
• Eleven years being ranked “Highest in Customer Satisfaction with Home Improvement Retail Stores” by J.D. Power*
