Kingston, MA, United States, 2007/01/17 - Representatives from Marshfield-based Taylor Lumber/ACE Hardware, a full-service hardware store, lumberyard and tool/equipment rental center located at 2075 Ocean Street (Route 139) in Marshfield, recently attended ACE Hardware’s national convention.
The three-day event held in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, October 5-7, gave ACE Hardware storeowners the opportunity to attend business education seminars, network with other ACE Hardware franchise owners, and visit the booths of national vendors—like Scotts®, Weber® grills—to check out the latest line of products for 2007.
“At the fall shows, we typically buy the products we know we’re going to need in the winter and spring such as windshield washer fluid, ice melt, Scott’s lawn care products and Weber grills,” said Rick Taylor, third generation owner of Taylor Lumber. “
Besides savings, Taylor Lumber’s affiliation with ACE Hardware gives the store access to higher quality items from vendors. As an ACE co-op member, Taylor Lumber automatically receives a Scott’s “lawn pro” dealer designation. This allows them to sell higher quality Scotts products, like the popular four-step program. Other stores, including mega chains such as Lowe's, Home Depot, and Wal-Mart, may sell Scotts products but cannot sell the actual four-step product—only Scotts “lawn pro” dealers, like Taylor Lumber, can.
“Besides being able to offer top-of-the-line products, our ACE affiliation gives us access to training and education from our vendors both at convention and during the year,” said Taylor. “So when you come into the store asking about a Weber grill or Scott’s lawn care product, you’re getting an answer from somebody who’s received training from the vendor. That can save customers a lot of time, money, and aggravation.”
Taylor Lumber/ACE Hardware has maintained the old fashioned, personal service once offered by every good hometown lumber and hardware store. The Taylor family has been serving Marshfield’s lumber and hardware needs for more than 60 years. Today they are a full-service hardware store and lumberyard serving professional contractors and the “do-it-yourselfer”. Taylor Lumber combines traditional, old-fashioned service with the advances of today's building materials. As an ACE affiliate, they are able to bring the customer a wide variety of top quality, competitively priced products.
Taylor Lumber recently added ACE Rental Place. To accommodate the new service, Taylor has designated a thirty-two hundred square foot building next to their main retail store. This large rental building provides ample space to familiarize customers with the rental equipment.
Taylor Lumber/ACE Hardware is located at 2075 Ocean Street (Route 139) in Marshfield, Mass.
