Houston -- Retailers were privy to a number of below-manufacturing-cost "Power Buys" at the Ace 2014 Spring Convention & Exhibits, with the potential for added profit that "can pay for a couple of people to come to Houston," said general merchandise manager Frank Carroll at the opening General Session.
"The mindset here is a 'thank you'," he added. "Thank you for coming to Houston."
Among the SKUs on sale for Power Buy prices were bronze and brushed nickel ceiling light fixtures, LED bulbs, a four-gallon wet/dry vac, and a Lufkin tape measures.
Additionally, Savings Showcase (formerly known as Pallet Alley) was in full force on the show floor, which featured over 700 deals.
Purchases can be fulfilled via ACENET, at the show or via mobile. The deals will be available on ACENET through March 23.
