Conversion Stories: Weakley-Watson Ace Hardware

“Change is never easy, but our conversion to Ace has paid off better than we could have ever hoped. Brick and mortar retail is a battleground, and we are proud to have joined Ace in their endeavor to plan their stake in a growing online world. We have seen, and firmly believe, that carrying the Best Brands and providing the best services have pushed us to the front of the community and established our store as the leader in quality and service. We have seen an average gross margin percentage increase of 4 points! Advertising, branding and co-op engagement have made all the difference. No change is easy, but some are worth it.”

-Weston Jacobs, Owner
