Medicine Hat partners building ‘Maple Ave ACE Hardware’ with foundational business advantage from ACE Canada / Sexton Group Strategic Alliance.
May 21, 2021
ACE Canada and the Sexton Group Ltd are pleased to announce the new Maple Ave ACE Hardware in Medicine Hat, Alberta has chosen to align with us and gain the advantages extended to independent hardware and lumber dealers through our Strategic Alliance.
The Sexton Group and ACE Canada Strategic Alliance was formalized and publicly announced in November 2020, with full collaborative terms taking effect January 1, 2021. At the core of the alliance is a joint supply agreement providing the opportunity for all ACE dealers and/or Sexton Group members to benefit from expanded and improved product selection, distribution and other services that only two innovative and exceptional leaders in their own areas of expertise could bring to the table in a combined offering.
“It is exciting to see our Strategic Alliance vision and program take shape once again in Medicine Hat. This incredible new store will bring together everything ACE Canada and the Sexton Group has to offer and demonstrates the belief shown by these independent dealer owners in the solid opportunity this program represents. We welcome ‘Maple Ave’ to the ACE Canada brand and believe the groundwork is in place for a long, healthy and successful business relationship.” - Damian Zapisocky, Senior VP, Corporate and Strategic Development, Peavey Industries LP - ACE Canada
“At Sexton, we have always been proud to grow with members in their local communities. We are excited to be a part of this grassroots store in Medicine Hat, Alberta and look forward to servicing their building material requirements under their new store, Maple Ave ACE Hardware. We welcome Myrna, Colin and Shane to the Sexton Group.” – Eric Palmer, Vice President and General Manager, Sexton Group Ltd.
Located at 760 - 3rd Street SE, Maple Ave ACE Hardware is an entirely new hardware and lumber outlet for Medicine Hat. Business owners Myrna Stark, Colin Hyland and Shane Marshall each bring their own strengths to the table, providing the ideal combination of skills and knowledge required to build their business into one their community will appreciate and grow to rely on for years to come. Along with a hardware, high-end housewares and a lumber and building materials focus, the group has plans for an onsite sausage and jerky processing facility, with these savoury products available for purchase in-store.
“Together with my partners, Colin and Shane, we are very excited to bring the ACE Hardware name to Medicine Hat. This is a new and exciting brand for our area and I am sure our community will love the variety of items we will offer in our garden centre, our lumber yard, our barbeque area or just in our store itself. The easy access and the convenience of our location, directly on Maple Avenue, is something that we know will please our surrounding neighbors. We can’t wait to open our doors and get started!” – Myrna Stark, Partner/Owner, Maple Ave ACE Hardware
Construction of the new retail building and lumber yard are in progress and Maple Ave ACE Hardware is expected to be open for business by the end of June. Stay tuned for future brief announcements and updates as opening day nears.
