In Michigan, a hardware store is honored

BY Ken Clark

The owner of Ace Hardware of Grand Ledge, near Lansing, Mich., received a "Businessperson of the Year" award from the Grand Ledge Area Chamber of Commerce.

Jim Roberts, whose family also owns Ace stores in Mason and Holt, Mich., told Home Channel News that the store’s focus on service is what sets it apart 

The 10,000-sq.-ft. store has been open since 1997 and co-exists across the street from a big-box Meijer store on Saginaw Highway. 

"The Meijer store is actually more of a help than a hindrance," he said. "We don’t overlap, and we offer the kind of service that customers appreciate."

During the Jan. 15 award ceremony, Roberts and Ace Hardware of Grand Ledge were recognized for "service, personal attention, helping people and being community minded" by the chamber of commerce.

Do it Best prepares to relaunch member website

BY Ken Clark

Mydoitbest.com, the Fort Wayne, Ind.-based co-op’s member-exclusive communication portal, is receiving a facelift and a makeover.

According to the co-op, the new enhancements include a cleaner look, a smoother interface, streamlined navigation and enhanced search capabilities.    

The site is currently undergoing testing and fine-tuning, guided by member feedback. It is expected to go live in the next one or two weeks, the co-op said.

One of the new features of the member portal is the ability to quickly find American-made products in the digital catalog.

The new Mydoitbest.com is an example of the co-op’s recently announced World Class Commerce Center initiative, with the goal of creating a "single best-in-class online merchandise, sales and information catalog for members and customers."

Mappen | kinderbett Good posting. I think that Havlicek is bringing back a popular feature, the ability to get propane tanks refilled rather than exchanged. And he has hired some of the previous store's employees. Steuerberater Köln The Woodburn event took place Dec. 2. The co-op's expos, held at retail service centers throughout the country, are the result of extensive collaboration between Do it Best's sales and business development, merchandising and retail logistics divisions - ebv | E-Mail Further enhancing the value of the New Product Expos was the addition of vendor seminars and informative Do it Best Corp. training sessions. “Along with the tables and tables of new items, we offered our members the opportunity to tour their warehouse to learn about the operational efficiency of the co-op,” said regional sales and business development manager Dave Enmark. “At our recent Waco, Texas, expo we included training sessions on Do it Best Radio, Category Solutions, store design, paint, LBM, advertising and our Compete and Win program. Everything was well received, and our members left with a number of ideas to immediately implement in their stores as well as new products to attract and retain customers - Guenstiger | barhocker When it became clear that organized labor’s agenda to impose sweeping changes to labor law through the proposed card check legislation had failed in Congress, the NLRB delivered an early Christmas gift to its union allies by finalizing the ambush election law,” said NLBMDA president Michael O’Brien. “The law’s only purpose is to make it easier for unions to win elections at the expense of the free speech rights of business owners.” - Stempel | Betriebshaftpflichtversicherung vergleichen The lawsuit, Chamber of Commerce, et al. v.

Looks like the store is about to be opened pretty soon. With the new owners, I think the store will look slightly different. I think with the design centre, it will showcase the expertise of the interior designer in their team. Once it opens it doors to the public, I am sure that business will resume quite soon.
