Sun.Star Pampanga - - LIFESTYLE! -

ACE HARD­WARE, the one stop shop for the lat­est home im­prove­ment so­lu­tions, was re­cently el­e­vated to the Hall of Fame in the For­eign Brand Re­tailer – Home Im­prove­ment Cat­e­gory dur­ing the Philip­pine Re­tailer’s As­so­ci­a­tion’s 20th Out­stand­ing Filipino Re­tail­ers and Shop­ping Cen­ters of the Year Awards at the Grand Ball­room of So­laire Re­sort and Casino.

ACE Hard­ware, one of the lead­ing hard­ware stores in the United States, opened its first fran­chise in the Philip­pines at SM South­mall, Las Piñas in 1997. Since then, it has grown to be­come one of the coun­try’s lead­ing home hard­ware chains with more than 150 ACE Hard­ware branches na­tion­wide and still grow­ing.

ACE Hard­ware car­ries a wide range of hard­ware prod­ucts and power tools, elec­tri­cal and plumb­ing equip­ment, paints and sun­dries, build­ing ma­te­ri­als, out­door equip­ment, and items for the car and the house. It also has a lawn and gar­den sec­tion for gar­den­ing needs and a pet sec­tion for the an­i­mal lovers.

This is the third time ACE has been hon­ored with a PRA Award, thus el­e­vat­ing it into Hall of Fame sta­tus. Others in­clude the OFRCat­e­gory Killer Award in 2013 and OFR-Best Home Im­prove­ment Cen­ter Award in 2015.

Philip­pine Re­tail­ers As­so­ci­a­tion has over 400 mem­ber com­pa­nies, cov­er­ing a wide scope of the dis­tri­bu­tion chain, in its fold — from re­tail­ers, mall and shop­ping cen­ter op­er­a­tors to traders/sup­pli­ers, man­u­fac­tur­ers, dis­trib­u­tors, and whole­salers, among others.

PRA’s an­nual search for the Out­stand­ing Filipino Re­tail­ers seeks to rec­og­nize Filipino re­tail­ers who have epit­o­mized the model of a suc­cess­ful re­tailer in terms of growth and good eth­i­cal busi­ness prac­tices.
