Maricopa ACE Hardware is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a grand re-opening and “Thank You Maricopa!” event on Nov. 5.

The celebration starts at 11 a.m. with music by Nashville recording artist Carl Herrgesell. Dickey’s BBQ starts serving lunch at noon. Miss Arizona Katelyn Niemiec will be in attendance, and every customer gets a Scratcher Game Card.

“I’m fortunate enough with the staff that we have that we’re an award-winning ACE store,” owner Mike Richey said as the focus of an “engage” presentation for Maricopa Center for Entrepreneurship (see below). “Part of that revolves around customer service.”
