Rocky’s connects with customers and hungry pets

BY Ken Clark

Springfield, Mass.-based Rocky’s Ace Hardware, a family-owned business with 33 stores has engaged in a partnership with Nutro Pet Foods and its customers to help homeless and abandoned pets.

Each of the 33 Rocky’s Ace Hardware stores have partnered with an area Humane Society or Shelter to collect food this holiday season for forgotten and unfortunate animals. “This is a fantastic opportunity for concerned individuals to help innocent animals without having to make a separate trip to their area Animal Shelter or Humane Society” said Rocco Falcone, president and CEO.

Under the program, customers make donations of pet food at their local Rocky’s Ace Hardware store. The stores collect all donations and drive them to their locally chosen charity. Nutro Pet Foods has partnered with Rocky’s in donating more than $1,500 worth of premium dog and cat food to kick-start the program.

I have learned many things
I have learned many things about our actual economy from http://www.absolutewealth.com/. I have started my work being a sales agent, in few months I became sales coordinator and in two years I owned a leadership position in the company. To succeed as I did you have to be attentive to the market's changes and to take the best decision based on these changes. Good luck because if you are motivated you can be the next CEO in your company.

It sounds like Mizell was simply riding out the inevitable longer than other companies. The Home Depotization of every neighborhood has had this effect on mom and pop stores of all kinds. Very sad, but very true. neprinol

When a business with such a storied history such as Mizell Lumber closes its doors, I feel quite sorry for them. The lumber industry has been hit because of environmental activists on the constant fight against them, plus the embracing of IT as a medium to store data, both resulted in a drop in demand for paper and timber. I wonder how other lumber companies are holding out. Stoett
