Standard Plumbing Supply's ACE Hardware Opens in Taylorsville
Grand Opening Celebration
City Officials and ChamberWest welcomed Standard Plumbing Supply's ACE Hardware to Taylorsville with a Ribbon Cutting at their new location, 3915 W. 4700 South.
With its grand opening, ACE brings its expert team of helpful hardware folks, as well as everything you need to fix, repair and maintain your home. The store is Standard Plumbing Supply's first ACE store in Utah and the largest overall ACE Hardware store in the state.
The store celebrated with a Ribbon Cutting on Sept. 13. The opening is a dream come true, said Dave Freeman, the store's Management Assistant of Directives and Strategy, who also noted that the project was two years in the making. "It's good for us and good for the city," he said.
Mayor Kristie Overson greeted Standard Plumbing Supply ACE Hardware store representatives and even picked up a few items along with other shoppers. Store hours are 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Friday and 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Saturday.
Standard Plumbing Supply has been around since 1952 and is a Utah-based company. They have over 100 stores in nine states. In the past four years, Standard has added hardware to their plumbing supplies to better service the contractor and the homeowner.
ACE Hardware has more than 5,000 stores around the world with the majority of those stores independently owned and operated by local entrepreneurs. Founded in 1924 by a small group of Chicago hardware store owners, ACE changed the retail landscape by allowing individual stores to purchase merchandise in bulk to save money and buy at the lowest possible price. Today, ACE Hardware Corp. is still owned solely and exclusively by the local ACE retail entrepreneurs.
