Karsten’s Ace Hardware was recently recognized with the “Waz Maricopa Business of the Year” award on April 24, 2021 at Copper Sky.

The award, named in honor of Bill “The WAZ” Wasowicz, is given in memory of all the contributions he gave to Maricopa when he was alive. The award honors the business that has made the greatest positive impact on Maricopa over the past year, has accomplished something noteworthy that brings honor to both the business and the community, has an excellent reputation (internally and externally) and is a leader in its field. This business must demonstrate sound business practices and excellence in customer service, and demonstrate community involvement through activities, programs and/or service.

“It is an honor and privilege to be recognized for our team’s commitment to serving our Maricopa neighbors,” said David Karsten, owner of Karsten’s Ace Hardware. “We pride ourselves on being helpful both in our store and in the neighborhoods we serve, which is why this recognition means so much to us.”

The WAZ award was established by the Maricopa Chamber of Commerce in 2010.

Karsten’s Ace Hardware has been part of the Maricopa community since 2005.
