Bring your family to our store at Dunstan Corner where the Scarborough Fire Department will be sharing tips and advice about fire safety and prevention that will help keep everyone safe in the event of an emergency. Demonstrations will be taking place throughout the morning and early afternoon, and there will be goodies for the kids. Make sure your home is prepared with up-to-date alarms and new batteries, as well as a plan - or two - on how to exit the house. Don't wait until it's too late - learn how to be prepared before a fire emergency happens!

This Saturday we will be celebrating a very special event: owner and helpful hardware man Dan Johnson's 40th Anniversary at Ace Hardware! He started at Oak Hill Hardware when he was a sophomore in high school, if you can believe that! He worked his way up, becoming store manager at 21 and then general manager of both the Oak Hill and Dunstan locations. Dan and his wife, Anne, officially purchased the stores a few years ago and continue to grow this family owned and operated business with their children, Nate and Rebecca and son-in-law Tyler. In addition to the celebration, we'll be holding our annual Customer Appreciation Day to celebrate all of YOU with free hot dogs, giveaways and more, including a 40% off one item under $40* to celebrate the man himself.
