In honor of the 11 consecutive trophies, during the event everything in the store, with some exceptions, will be 11 percent off.

“From noon to 4 we will reward our customers with store-wide savings on everything from tools and paint to grills and sporting goods.” said Rick Stidham, Store Manager. “We will also be doing grilling demos along with providing lunch of hot dogs, chips, and pop or water. Customers will have the opportunity to take a photo with the prestigious J.D. Power trophies and can win prizes in appreciation for their continued support of locally owned businesses like Wauseon Ace.”
