Associated Retail Operations (ARO) is excited to announce the grand opening of its newest ACE Hardware store at 706 W Price River Drive in Price, Utah. This location, situated next to Lin’s Fresh Market grocery store, marks a significant milestone as the sixth ACE Hardware store owned by Associated Retail Operations and the first corporate-owned ACE Hardware in Southern Utah. 

Steve Holm, the district manager for that area, stated, “This store represents a significant expansion for Associated Retail Stores into Southern Utah. We are proud to open our first ACE Hardware in this region and look forward to delivering the same level of dedication and support that ACE is known for nationwide.” 

This new store embodies ACE Hardware’s commitment to providing knowledgeable and helpful service, paired with the best brands to support everyday home maintenance projects. The comprehensive product range includes paint, lawn and garden supplies, hardware, electrical, plumbing, automotive, and home décor. This store also features a garden center and patio that will be stocked with seasonal items, a selection of ammo and the popular line of Carhart clothing. 

Matthew Thorstead , the store director at ACE Price, expressed his excitement about the opening, stating, “We are delighted to bring ACE Hardware’s quality products and exceptional service to the Price community. Our mission is to provide guests with the neighborly advice and assistance they expect from ACE Hardware.” 

The grand opening celebrations commenced on May 20 and continued throughout the week. Activities include product giveaways, demonstrations and special sales. 

Associated Retail Stores’ other ACE Hardware locations are in Murray, Sandy, Draper, Olympus Hills and Pinebrook. Many of AFS’ independent owners also own ACE Hardware stores as they strive to fulfill the needs of their neighborhoods and communities.
