Jaret and Jason Gordon along with their spouses Lindy (Jaret) and Kimberly (Jason) purchased Southgate Hardware Inc. in August of 2014. Since the 1930’s there has been a family owned hardware related business at this location. The Money family from 1930 to 1991 then the Webster’s from 1991 to 2014. What already was a great hardware store has continued to get better. The first month the Gordon’s joined the Ace Hardware Co-op. The store was completely professionally merchandised and laid out for optimal shopping and convenience for our customers. New interior and exterior signage was added. Propane was added in May of 2015. Many new products have been added and continue to be added. The biggest additions were Craftsman Tools, Valspar, Clark & Kensington, Chip Keys, Toro, and inventory levels have grown significantly. Our customers comment on how they love our store because it is easy to shop, helpful service, and saving them time being able to get in and out.
We are excited to be adding Stihl in December of 2015.
Jason and Jaret grew up on a small farm just north of the store in Lake Shore.
Today the business operates as Ace Hardware Payson.
Many of the same employees are still at Ace and ready to serve.
Add up the current staffs years at our location and it is over 70 years. If you added up other retail/hardware experience it would be over 125 years.
#1 focus is customer service. Completive pricing. We can compete with the big box stores and we offer service.
