Ribbon cutting at Noon
Yulee, Fla., November 9, 2020 – Scheduled to open its doors on Friday, November 20th, Hagan Ace Hardware of Yulee, located at 85880 Miner Road, will bring its “more personal kind of helpful” and best brands like Stihl, Weber, Big Green Egg, Traeger, Benjamin Moore, Magnolia Home by Joanna Gaines Paint and Scotts to local homeowners and DIYers. Hagan Ace Hardware is proud to provide solutions to everyday home maintenance needs through an extensive selection of products in categories such as paint, grilling, lawn and garden. The Garden Center at Yulee also includes a butterfly habitat Hagan Ace is known for. At Hagan Ace Hardware of Yulee, customers can expect the personal, knowledgeable, and helpful service that makes them feel like a neighbor.
This store will also be home to the 3rd location of Hagan Coastal Outfitters - specializing in Sunglasses, Shoes, Kayaks, Paddleboards, Fishing & Marine, Outdoor Apparel and more. With over 50 years of experience serving the North Florida community in the hardware business, the Hagan family decided to think outside the toolbox and open a full service, local outfitter shop. Hagan Coastal Outfitters also offers private, one on one, on the water demos so customers can try before they buy.
This is the ninth Ace store opened by owner Bill Hagan. The state-of-the-art store will span 20,000 square feet and stock thousands of products – including a focus on local brands. Hagan Ace recently launched a campaign called ‘Hagan Ace Loves Local’. Old fashioned carts are positioned front and center in each store highlighting locally made goods. From peanuts to popcorn, BBQ sauce to bug spray, honey to fishing hats – you’ll find a wide variety of specialty items made by local small business owners.
“Ace Hardware is committed to providing home maintenance solutions, neighborly advice and resources to residents in Yulee,” said Bill Hagan, owner of Hagan Ace Hardware. “We’re excited to be part of the Yulee community, and we look forward to making a positive impact for many years to come.”
At Hagan Ace Hardware our philosophy has always been to move our people up the ranks, promoting from within when the opportunity exists and always being open to talented folks outside the company that have experiences and qualities that would be an asset to our company. Thomas Doby, former Store Manager in Hilliard, will assume the management responsibilities in Yulee. Thomas has worked at the Hilliard store since October 4, 2017 and is looking forward to a new adventure with a ground-up store.
