Ladies!  You Are Invited!

Thursday, November 30th is Ladies Night Out at Ace Hardware!

Ready or not . . . The Holidays are coming! As you are well aware, it is a crazy, hectic, wonderful time of year; however, it is often necessary to rejuvenate by taking a break and enjoying an evening with girlfriends. 

Ladies Night at Ace Hardware is a Great Way to Shop & Have Fun

An Evening of Fabulous Food, Good Friends and Wonderful Wine

While you are enjoying an evening with friends, sipping on wine and eating delicious appetizers, you can also find great gifts for everyone on your list – including something special for yourself too. 

There is a large variety of gifts – something for everyone!

Each person gets a coupon (at the door upon arrival or you can bring this coupon with you)

PLUS all regular priced Christmas ornaments are 25% off which helps lower the cost of the shopping experience.

Our neighborhood has a wonderful “Ornament Exchange” adult party – Ace is the perfect place to find that unique Christmas ornament for this event. 

Win – Win for everyone! 

Sip While You Shop

Mark your calendars for Thursday, November 30th  6:00 to 9:00.

Vendors Are a Bonus

On Ladies Night, there is an added bonus – a few VENDORS are invited to participate in this event and they have a multitude of creative gift ideas too. This year promises a wide variety of vendors including  Trudi Zangardi from The Barrel, Bonnie Sue Tobias from Norwex, Kelly O’Donnell of Beauty Counter, Novels & Note Cards by TJ, and gorgeous flower arrangements, holiday wreaths and jewelry by Karen Reader.

Meet the Trio of Women

Join this amazing trio who knows how to turn a hardware store into a festive and fabulous Ladies Night Experience.

Right to left:  Krystal Wilson Poore, Samantha “Sam” Arquitt (store general manager) and owner Denise Takes

Ms. Takes opened her store in 2012 and started with a 4-foot section of ONE aisle dedicated to hostess gifts. Over the years, the “gift aisle” has grown. Today, the entire center of the store is  dedicated to unique gift items – many with a Lake Norman flair.

Denise Takes, the owner of Ace Hardware confidently states, “This Ladies Night gathering is my ‘thank you’ to the women of Lake Norman for allowing me to build a gift shop within a hardware store.” 

For those who may not know it, there are hundreds of amazing creative and unique items – including those spotlighting Lake Norman!  It is a great place to pick up a hostess gift and/or a personal, creative gift for everyone on your list – and maybe a couple of items for YOU too. 

Locals have dubbed it “The Greatest Gift Aisle in Town.” 

The Selection of Children’s toys has quadrupled in the last couple of years. 

 This is a small sample of the choices available for kids.

The Store is Beautifully Decorated

Once a year, Karin Castoral-Jackson of “Décor ‘YULE’ Love” decorates the entire store and turns it into a seasonally joyful, uplifting environment. Ms. Jackson does a superb job of integrating Christmas décor with lovely gifts. Walking the aisles puts everyone in a festive Holiday mood.

Would you like your home/office decorated by a talented professional?

Her motto is:  “Tree Trimming, Mantles and More – Creating a magical home for the Holidays, one at a time.”  She can accomplish this in your home or business too!

Check It Out! Festive and Fun!

Post Office

Would you like to avoid the long lines at the Post Office during the Holidays? Guess what? There is a BONUS “hidden treasure” available at the end of the Gift Aisle.

The mini – full service – Post Office is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. except Sunday.

The Ace Hardware Post Office is convenient, quick and friendly!  Daily pick up is at 3:00 p.m.  The mini – full service – Post Office is open every day from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. except Sunday. Why wait in line at the Post Office on Williamson Road . . . drop off your packages at Ace and check “done” on your to-do list. 

You Deserve It!

Keep in mind – this hardware store is not solely for men with home and garden projects. It is definitely a “hidden treasure” where everyone can find the perfect gift! Hope you will join the fun on Ladies Night! Come alone or bring a friend.  Relax and Rejuvenate!

All Ladies Are Invited

This evening is as much about engaging with friends as it is about shopping. Even if you have no desire to buy anything – drop by and enjoy a few moments of R & R with the girls!  You deserve it!
